LUCKNOW: The death of a 32-year-old pregnant woman, allegedly due to medical negligence, sparked violent protests at Veerangana Jhalkari Bai Hospital on Monday night, prompting the health department to order an inquiry on Tuesday.

Family members tried to stall traffic at Hazratganj crossing and lodged a police complaint stating the hospital gave deceased Sunita Kumari "contaminated" oxygen, which caused organ failure.

While FIR is yet to be lodged, a four-member committee of three doctors of the hospital and one nominated by chief medical officer has been formed to probe.

The hospital's chief medical superintendent Sudha Singh said, "Sunita of Sitapur Road was brought to emergency ward in an advanced stage of pregnancy on Monday. She was anaemic and developed complications after delivering a baby boy. She lost a lot of blood and couldn't be saved despite timely transfusion."
