Irate relatives ransacked a hospital in Thane district in Maharashtra on Monday after a two-month-old boy died there while undergoing treatment, police said.
The infant was admitted to the hospital, situated in Kalyan, in the morning and died soon after, and the family has alleged it was due to lapses on part of doctors there, a charge rubbished by the doctors, said Inspector ST Jadhav.
He said a probe was underway and a case would be registered after verifying the allegations of the child's family and the defence of the medical staff at the facility.
