Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha today submitted a written complaint to SHRC on Nowshera rape case in which a teenage girl was raped on May 31 and she was allegedly denied the urgent medical treatment in sub district hospital Nowshera and in district hospital Rajouri later, BJYM chief Ravinder Raina said. The BJYM state president demanded the stern action against the doctors of sub district hospital and district hospital Rajouri for the alleged utter negligence.

Raina said the victim was denied of urgent medical treatment in the Nowshera hospital and was referred to district hospital at Rajouri by the doctors despite the availability of gynaecologist.

While in Rajouri, when the victim was in need of immediate medical help as she was bleeding profusely, was denied treatment and the poor and helpless parents were asked to take the girl to Government Medical College-Jammu instead of providing medical treatment to the teenager, he alleged.

Raina claimed that doctors abused the parents of the victims and demanded Rs 5,000 to grant ambulance to carry the victim to Jammu.
