The incident took place in July in Sadar hospital where one Sulekha Devi was admitted after she developed labour pains. She delivered a healthy baby via C-section but the doctors left a piece of surgical sponge in her abdomen.

“After her delivery on July 14, my wife kept complaining of a stomach ache. Despite several medications, she failed to get any relief.
