New Delhi: An 80-year-old man in Madhya Pradesh’s Shajapur was found tied to a bed at a hospital after he allegedly failed to pay a hospital bill. According to reports, the man was brought to Shajapur District Hospital due to a stomach ailment earlier in the week.

The man’s family members alleged that the hospital administration tied his legs and hands to bed after he was unable to pay the bill worth Rs 11,000 and urged the hospital administration to discharge him, according to NDTV.

“We had deposited a bill of Rs 5,000 at the time of admission but when the treatment took a few more days, we did not have the money to pay the bill,” said the man’s daughter. MP CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan has promised to take strict action against the hospital. “A case of cruelty with a senior citizen in a hospital in Shajapur has come to notice. The culprits will not be spared, strict action will be taken,” Chouhan tweeted.

However, the hospital maintained that he was tied because, “He was having convulsions because of electrolyte imbalance. We tied him so that he could not hurt himself,” said a doctor at the hospital. The doctor also added that the hospital had waived off their bill on humanitarian grounds.
