Pauktaw, Arakan- A Rohingya woman, admitted to Sittwe General Hospital for her baby delivery on 5th April 2014, died due to the lack of medical treatments. The similar kind of cases have already happened tens of times. Hence, local Rohingyas view that the authority in the hospital deliberately ignore or give the wrong injections to kill Rohingya patients admitted to the hospital.
Noor Begum is an Internally Displaced Rohingya woman living at the IDP camps of Anna-Raing in Pauktaw township. She was admitted to Sittwe general hospital on 5th April 2014 evening. But she passed away after a few hours as the doctors and the nurses in the hospital neglected her and her dire condition” said Headway News Group, a source in Sittwe.
“It has happened many tens of times before. They simply do not treat Rohingya patients. Worst, they sometimes kill Rohingya patients by giving them wrong injections. No Rohingya patient has been discharged alive from the hospital. This could also be a case of deliberate killing” added the source.
