In a complaint, based on which the FIR was filed at Kotwali police station on Wednesday, one Dr Manoj Kumar has alleged that his sister died after the doctors at the hospital removed her oxygen supply on April 26.

"The complainant has alleged that his sister's condition had improved on April 26, after which Dr Vinay Pandey and Dr Ramesh Mishra pressured him to take his sister elsewhere. He alleged that the doctors withdrew the oxygen supply to his sister, leading to her death," said Circle Office (City) Seema Yadav.
