“We were denied the service of ambulance by the authorities, which, led to Manzoor’s death,” said Ghulam Ahmad, relative of the deceased.
The protesters blocked the road at Kangan Chowk for several hours due to which the traffic remained suspended. They were demanding immediate action against the hospital administration.
