Covid-19 Positive Women Jumps to Death from Hospital after ‘Not Being Allowed to Fast’ on Karva Chauth
A covid-19 positive woman admitted to the Saifai Medical University in Etawah committed suicide by jumping from the third floor of the university building on Wednesday.
The body of the woman was handed over to her family members after the post-mortem. The reason behind his such extreme step is yet to be ascertained, however, some people aware of this incident linked his death to being unable to fast Karwa Chauth.
The woman suffered from covid 19 and admitted to Saifai Medical University on Wednesday when a section of Hindu women was fasting on the occasion of Karwachauth, a festival when women pray for the health of their husbands. The woman, who hails from Mainpuri district, was admitted to the isolation ward of the hospital. According to preliminary information, the woman was suffering from neuro-ailment and was admitted to the Women’s Neuro-Surgery Department for treatment on 27 October.
This is not the first case of suicide from Saifai Medical University. Notably, in 2016 a prison inmate also leaped to his death.
