Relatives of a murder accused created a ruckus at Maharaja Yeshwantrao Hospital after the doctors declared him dead on Wednesday morning.

The family members alleged that the deceased, Nitin Tiwari, 35, was keeping well till Tuesday and was suddenly declared dead on Wednesday which only could happen due to hospital negligence.

Tiwari had been serving life term at Indore Central Jail in connection with the Yogesh Bhatti murder that took place in 2004. He was admitted to MY hospital on August 23 this year after he was diagnosed with a kidney ailment.

Agitated over his sudden death, the family members engaged in a heated exchange with the hospital staff. The hospital called in the police after the situation threatened to go out of hand and the family members refused to sign the post-mortem papers.

Later, the police officers from the nearby Sanyogitaganj police station managed to pacify the angry family members and convinced them to allow post-mortem as that would only help identify the cause of the death.
