Indian hospital under scrutiny over deaths

Government facility in Kolkata rejects accusations of negligence despite deaths of 60 children over nine days.

    More than 60 children have died in a government hospital in the eastern Indian city of Kolkata over the past nine days.

    Parents told Al Jazeera they blame it on negligence, but the hospital has dismissed the allegations.

    The facility provides free health care to poor families and is the largest of its kind in the region.
