Earlier on Thursday afternoon, Afia Jahan Chaity, 20, a first year student of the Zoology department at DU, died at the hospital allegedly for receiving the wrong treatment.
Chaity, who hails fom Chapainawabganj district, was admitted last Wednesday after doctors of the hospital diagnosed her with “acute myeloblastic leukaemia,” a type of blood cancer.
Yet her discharge paper said: “Chaity died of dengue fever.”
As news of her death spread, 150-200 DU students became furious and vandalised a number of rooms in the hospital.
Later, Dhaka University authorities filed a medical malpractice case with Dhanmondi police station against the hospital authorities for Chaity's death. The hospital director was shown arrested in the case.
