When Nikita woke up, she tried to reach for her mother and fell from the bed. She was immediately inspected by the doctor but after few minutes she died. CMHO Dr Veena Sinha said that the child was not alone; she was with her mother and aunt. “The child was severely stricken by malnutrition too apart from having lost all her energy due to diarrhoea and that is why she couldn’t bear the accident”, said Sinha.
