The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Sunday sealed a clinic of a quack at Barsalu village in the district in an alleged case of wrong medical treatment that resulted in death of an 11-year-old boy, Ankit.

According to the family of the victim, the boy was suffering from cough and chest congestion and he was taken a registered medical practitioner (RMP), Subhash.

Family members and other villagers from Barsalu staged a protest and sat outside the camp office of the deputy commissioner on Sunday.

Victim's uncle Amit Singh alleged that Subhash administered three injections to Ankit on October 31 night and the boy died after that due to wrong medical treatment.

He threatened to continue an indefinite sit-in till the accused was arrested.

FDA spokesman said the raiding team learnt that the accused quack was missing since Ankit's death. Meanwhile, the police sources said the body was sent to the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (PGIMS), Rohtak, for an autopsy.

Deputy superintendent of police Baljinder Singh said a case was registered against quack and efforts were on to trace him.
