A two-month-old boy died allegedly after being administered three immunisation injections at a government dispensary in Sonepat on Wednesday.
The hospital authorities kept the body at the civil hospital's emergency room for post-mortem. Police have started investigations after receiving a complaint from Pooja, the victim's mother.
The police said Pooja alleged in her complaint that her son was administered three injections by an employee of the health department at the dispensary on Wednesday and as she reached home, the child started vomiting and bleeding through nose profusely.
She said when she took the child to a nearby nursing home, doctors declared him brought dead.
Sonepat SMO JS Poonia said: "Immunisation injections are administered for DPT, hepatitis and BCG, but in this case, real reason behind the death of the child would be known after the post-mortem reports are out."
