A video of a man carrying the body of his seven-year-old daughter on his shoulders in Chhattisgarh's Surguja district went viral on social media on Friday.

It is learned that the girl died on Friday morning at the Community Health Center located in Lakhanpur village of the district. Ishwar Das, a resident of Amdala village, had brought his ailing daughter Surekha to Lakhanpur CHC early in the morning.


According to sources, the 7-year-old girl was suffering from fever and colic died during treatment. The family told that the nurse gave an injection to the girl on a hungry stomach, as a result, blood came out of her nose and she died. After this, her father took the body away due to the non-availability of an ambulance.
