As a result, with no money with them, they started walking carrying the child looking for help. The mother said that the boy passed away on their way back home.

However, the hospital denied all claims made by the family. “A child named Afroz came to the hospital at 8:10 pm. His condition was not well, so we directed the parents t take him to Lucknow for special treatment. They scoffed saying they will take him wherever they wish and left with the kid,” said the emergency medical officer, Anurag Parashar.
