Hyderabad: A debt-ridden weaver, who attempted suicide, died after being shifted between six hospitals in Karimnagar and Rajanna Sircilla districts. While state hospitals were unable to treat him due to the shortage of ventilators, private hospitals demanded a deposit.

Samala Nagabushanam, 60, a weaver from Sundarayya Nagar, Sircilla, consumed pesticide because he was unable to repay his debts. He was rushed to a private hospital where his family was told that treatment would be expensive. The family shifted him to the Sircilla Government Hospital but found that there was no ventilator. They were asked to take him to Karimnagar Gove-rnment Hospital which did not have ventilators.  

 

Nagabhushanam was brought back to the Sircilla government hospital on Monday night. On Tuesday morning, he was shifted to a corporate hospital in Karimnagar, which demanded a Rs 12,000 deposit and told his family that treatment would cost Rs 15,000 per day. The family shifted him back to the Sircilla government hospital, where he died on Tuesday afternoon.

A case has been registered by the police. Nagabushanam, employed at a weaving plant, had borrowed Rs 4 lakh for his daughter's wedding. He lost a hand in a machine-related accident in 2014 and a leg while working on power looms. He also suffered a paralytic stroke. He is survived by a wife and an unmarried daughter.
