In August, the family and friends of the 15-year-old boy who passed away in MY Hospital in Indore, alleged that he received improper care, attempted to set fire to the boy's body within the hospital's walls as a form of protest against the medical staff.

The family of the deceased began preparing a pyre for the final ceremonies to be held on the hospital grounds. Logs were stacked upon logs, with cakes of cow dung on top. The family was very agitated and insisted on having the post-mortem performed at Aurobindo Hospital rather than MY Hospital.
