The twin who survived after being forced to leave a private hospital returned home from Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) on Monday after recovering.
Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) made the necessary arrangements for the child’s treatment at DMCH and provided its family with financial support, said Major Zulkair Naen of RAB-3.
He said, the incident was extremely inhumane that the twins were not given treatment, rather forced to leave the hospital because their parents couldn’t bear the expenses, and one of them even died. The surviving twin was then treated in DMCH on the instructions of RAB officials.
He also warned hospital authorities that if any patient is forced to leave hospital without proper treatment action would be taken against them.
On January 7, twins- Abdullah and Ahmedullah were taken to Amader Bangladesh Hospital in city's Shyamoli as they became sick. Their parents couldn’t manage to pay the hospital bill so they were forced to leave the hospital. One of the twins, Ahmedullah died on the way to the DMCH.
After various media covered the incident the owner of the hospital Golam Sarwar was arrested by RAB.
