“My son was admitted to hospital for a simple surgery on March 3. Prior to the surgery, Dr G R Chandrasekhar and 2 other doctors said him to be ok after primary check up. He was then taken to operation theatre. He didn’t get back his consciousness even after hours of the surgery. He died of excessive anaesthesia. The doctors tried to close the issue by offering us money and tried to scare us. I filed a complaint at Alanahalli police station, but no action has been taken yet,” he added.
