A Jharkhand resident was on Sunday forced to carry his minor son’s body after he was allegedly denied an ambulance service in Gumla district, following which chief minister Raghubar Das ordered an inquiry.

Karan Singh’s 8-year-old son Suman was admitted at the Sadar Hospital in Gumla district after he complained of fever four days ago.

He died on Sunday as the medicines for Malaria prescribed by the doctors treating him were allegedly not available at the hospital.

Karan Singh wanted an ambulance to ferry the body to his home but was denied the same. So he carried the body on his shoulder, followed by his weeping wife.

After the incident was brought to the chief minister’s notice, he ordered the probe.
