New Delhi:

A probe has been ordered after a septuagenarian who was declared dead by doctors was found alive in the morgue next morning, police said on Saturday. The shocking incident happened at a government hospital in Madhya Pradesh's Bina town. 

The 72-year-old man, identified as Kishan, hailing from Chhatarpur district was declared dead but he was found to be alive while being taken for a postmortem. He was brought to the Bina Civil Hospital in Sagar district after being found unconscious on a road, an official added.

"He was brought to the hospital in Bina on June 14. At around 9 pm on June 20, an on-duty doctor declared him dead and sent a note on it to the police. On June 21, when a police team reached the morgue, Kishan was found alive. He was even trying to mutter something," said Bina police station in-charge Anil Maurya.

However, the man – a resident of Naugaon town in Chhatarpur district - died a short while later.

"Kishan was rushed to the hospital again but he died a little while later at around 10:30 am," Maurya said.

Following this negligence of the doctor, Chief Medical and Health Officer (CMHO) Dr SR Roshan said it would be investigated.

Bina Sub Divisional Magistrate (SDM) KL Meena said a report on the incident would be sent to the CMHO and the latter would take a decision on the action against the errant doctor.
