Sagar (MP): A 72-year-old man declared dead by doctors at a government hospital in Madhya Pradesh's Bina town was found alive in the morgue next morning, police said on Saturday.

But the man, who was brought to Bina Civil Hospital in Sagar district after being found unconscious on a road, died a short while later, an official added.

He was identified as Kishan, a resident of Naugaon town in Chhatarpur district.

"He was brought to the hospital in Bina on June 14. At around 9 pm on June 20, an on-duty doctor declared him dead and sent a note to the police. On June 21, when a police team reached the morgue, Kishan was found alive. He was even trying to mutter something," said Bina police station in-charge Anil Maurya.

"Kishan was rushed to the hospital again, but he died a little while later, at around 10:30 am," Maurya said.

Chief Medical and Health Officer (CMHO) Dr SR Roshan said the doctor's negligence would be investigated.

Bina Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM) KL Meena said a report on the incident would be sent to the CMHO, which would take a decision on the action against the errant doctor.
