Hoshiarpur: A woman died of a heart attack at a hospital in Hoshiarpur in Punjab while doctors were busy attending a VIP programme in the hospital.

The woman who died was the mother of a policeman. The policeman kept pleading for assistance and help within the hospital at the place where the VIP programme was going on.

However, no doctor attended to him and his mother even as they kept sitting for the event. It was only when the policeman came to the function spot and shouted loud that some doctors got up and went to the emergency ward with him, but his mother had died by then.

The VIP function was attended by Minister of State for Health Santosh Chaudhary. Later, the minister also brushed off the incident saying it was a natural death.
