Rural Municipality Accused for the Death of a Woman in Labour
Madan Tamang, a local, has alleged that Velku Tamang, 37, of Chankheli Rural Municipality-5, Nepka, died at his house on April 12 after the Chankheli Rural Municipality failed to give a timely recommendation for an airlift to take her to Surkhet for further treatment. She had been in labor for the past three days.
As there is no treatment in the village, we have informed various agencies as per the plan to take her to Surkhet for further treatment since the morning of April 9. According to him, Tamang, was given a delivery date in the second week of April by the local NEPCA Basic Health Centre, was kept at home for three days even though she was in labor.
Prem Bahadur Singh, head of the Public Health Office, Humla, said that he had taken the initiative to rescue Tamang as soon as he was informed that her health condition was critical. Singh, who is in Surkhet, the capital of Karnali province, said, “We received the news only three days ago this morning (Sunday).”
He added that he had coordinated with the District Administration Office and the President’s Women’s Rescue Program as soon as the news came.
Public Health Officer Singh admitted that there was a problem as the Presidential Rescue Program for air rescue would not be approved without local level confirmation. The deceased Tamang has five sons and a husband.
