Pune: Family of swine flu victim to sue hospital

Family members of the 14-year-old Indian girl, who died of swine flu are all set to slap civil and criminal charges against the private hospital where she was admitted.

The agitated family members of Rida Shaikh squarely blame the medical authorities in Pune for wrong diagnosis.

Following Rida's death, the Maharashtra government has decided to invoke the Epidemic Act in Pune and Satara districts of the state, to check the spread of swine flu.

The family lawyer said, they wanted to teach the private hospital a lesson by initiating action against them.
