Man protests in front of Karnataka CM’s house after baby dies.
Bengaluru: A man protested in front of Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa’s residence on Saturday alleging lack of medical care claimed the life of his one-month-old infant girl, police said on Saturday.
Venkatesh sat with the baby’s photograph in front of the Chief Minister’s house, saying the girl developed health issues on July 11 and he rushed her to a hospital, but it turned him away, the police said.
He said he had approached about a dozen hospitals and all of them refused to provide the baby any medical care. Eventually, the baby died.
This forced Venkatesh to hold a protest to draw the Chief Minister’s attention to the issue, the police said.
The demonstration drew public attention and a few people joined him in the protest, they said. Later, he was taken away from the spot by the police.
