They then took him to Ahmedabad Civil Hospital, where his treatment was started but the doctors were not present and he did not get proper treatment. So they brought him to Vadodara, where he died during treatment. I have lost my brother due to the carelessness of the doctors. We appeal to the government to look into the demands of doctors so that no one loses their brother or family.

His treatment started at the hospital, but as doctors were on strike and his family brought him back to Vadodara and admitted him to a private hospital. Where he died on Sunday afternoon during treatment.
