Her family alleged delay in her treatment at both the hospitals. Officials say she was declared brought dead at second hospital.

While the officials, claimed that her body was taken away by the family without completing the formalities because they feared that they might have to wait long for the burial if her sample was taken for COVID-19 testing, the family of the victim has denied any such claim of the officials.
