DURGAPUR, 14 DEC: Two tribal women died today post ligation surgery at a rural block hospital in Asansol today. Chandmoni Hembram of Kalipathar village and Radharani Tudu of Gaurangadihi village, who underwent ligation at Kelejora Block Primary Health Centre along with 12 other tribal women, died while they were taken to Asansol District Hospital in the late afternoon.
The Asansol administration apprehended that the casualties might provoke the tribals residing in the villages surrounding the rural hospital to unleash attack on the block medical officer and his family. The ADM, Asansol, Mr Jayanta Aikat said: “We have asked police to beef up security surveillance across the hospital area to prevent any untoward situation.”
Tribal housewives queued up at the Kelejora Block Primary Health Centre in Baraboni, about 15 km from Asansol town today where a mass ligation camp was organised. In all 14 women from the adjoining villages underwent tubal ligation surgery at the Kelejora Hospital today.
Chandmoni Hembram and Radharani Tudu, both aged around 40 were also taken to the camp and according to the hospital authorities:
“Their cases became complicated as both complained of gradual deterioration within an hour of operation.” The ADM, Asansol, Mr Jayanta Aikat said: “The medical officers told me that both the women were physically weak, so the rural hospital referred them immediately to the Asansol District Hospital.” On their way to the hospital, both the women died triggering panic among the medical staff. The bodies were kept under supervision at the Asansol Hospital for the night. MLA, Baraboni, Mr Bidhan Upadhyaya said: “Baraboni is a block having 43 villages under eight panchayats and the tribal and downtrodden mass contribute a significant percentage of the demography. The casualties, besides making ligation a fear factor among the backward communities, would also create tension in the area.”
Tubal ligation is a surgery performed to block woman’s fallopian tubes for permanent birth
The district administration has engaged the BDO, Baraboni to table a report on the matter at the earliest.

Despite the slim chances, Mayur Bhagat survived.
In Waghwadi’s Shahapur block in Thane, two-month-old was breathless and suffering from acute nasal and chest congestion when he was rushed to Dhakne’s sub-centre. But no doctor was present there. He was treated by a doctor on a field visit.
Bhagat received treatment through Community Health Initiative (CHI), an initiative of Impact India Foundation (IIF). Two million tribals in Thane are reaping its benefits.
CHI is a part of the National Rural Health Mission and is being implemented in the Parali primary health centre of Wada block in Thane. “Since May 2012, it has been working to reduce malnutrition, infant and maternal mortality,” said IIF’s general manager (special projects) Neelam Kshirsagar.
