Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, Aug 30, 2018: The death of a young woman soon after delivery at the Government Wenlock Hospital  here on August 30, led to a war of words between the families of the woman’s in-laws and her parents.


The deceased woman has been identified as Deepika Acharya (27) of  Karkala. Deepika was hospitalised on August 29 after she was found to be having high blood pressure. In order to avoid complications and considering her serious condition doctors had performed a caesarean surgery. But Deepika died soon after she delivered a baby boy.

Soon after, Deepika’s parents began to blame her husband Prakash Acharya and his family of negligence and even placed a demand  that Deepika’s body be handed over to them. However, her husband’s family turned down the demand.

When tension escalated, Pandeshwar Police rushed to the spot and are presently holding talks with both the sides.
