An Indian family alleged on Thursday (Aug 11) that their 10-month-old baby died after treatment was delayed by staff at a large, government-run hospital demanding bribes.

Sumita and Shiv Dutt said they rushed their ill son to the hospital on Sunday night in Uttar Pradesh state, where a nurse demanded payment in return for getting their paperwork submitted.

A cleaner then reportedly demanded another bribe to arrange a bed for the child in Bahraich hospital, which the family said on Indian television they had no choice but to pay.

Sumita Dutt alleged a medic asked for money two days later to administer an injection, but she had run out of funds, leading to an argument and a delay in the child receiving the treatment.
