She was taken into the operation theatre and doctors were about to perform the surgery. But after looking at the token, doctors said the time given for her was out and she was sent out without performing surgery. Her husband Suresh and family members lamented that doctors were not answering convincingly for their action.

When The Hans India contacted the hospital superintendent Dr Mallikarjun, he said the number of surgeries per day should not exceed 50, but that day the number went up to 70. "Our ANM brought the patient into the operation theatre.
