Dimapur: The Meghalaya unit of the National People’s Youth Front (NPYF), the youth wing of the National People’s Party (NPP), has sought Nagaland chief minister Neiphiu Rio’s help in initiating stringent action against those responsible for the unnatural death of Rosy Sangma and her nephew Samuel Sangma who died at a hospital at Gurugram in Haryana on June 24 and June 25, 2021, respectively due to alleged medical negligence and foul play.

Rosy, who was an air hostess, and Samuel hailed from Dimapur in Nagaland.

An eight-member team of NPYF submitted a representation in this regard to Rio in Kohima on Tuesday. The memorandum said as per the preliminary findings of the CBI in the case, the duo died due to medical negligence and foul play at Alfaa Health Care Hospital at Gurugram.

It said the CBI had carried out a preliminary inquiry and registered an FIR in the matter.

The representation said it was reliably learned from various news reports from leading national and local dailies that the inquiry conducted by the CBI and its findings revealed that the death of Rosy, who was brought to Alfaa Hospital by her two brothers and nephew Samuel on June 24, 2021, was caused due to the negligence on part of the treating doctors at the hospital. This was followed by the death of Samuel on June 25, 2021, the representation added.
