Two women died after undergoing a sterilisation operation at a primary health centre in Bihar's Purnia district, police said on Monday.

Gunjan Devi, 25, and Somna Devi, 28, died on late Saturday soon after the surgery at a sterilisation camp at Barhara Kothi primary health centre in Purnia, about 350 km from Patna.

"Their family members say the doctors are responsible for their deaths," a police official said.

According to district health officials, 21 women were sterilised at the camp on Saturday.

The district administration has ordered a probe into the case, the official added.
