Bengaluru: A 31-year-old woman, Magda Haroun Ali, was admitted to Sheshadripuram's Apollo hospital for fever. However, Ali was told that she was suffering from cancer and doctors recommended chemotherapy.
Days after receiving treatment, Ali felt suspicious and approached Bengaluru's Kidwai Laboratory and another diagnostic centre in Mumbai.
Shockingly, the doctors declared that she never had cancer in the first place. Taking the second opinion from the other hospitals, Ali urged the Apollo hospital and demanded an explanation.
As the hospital staff failed to answer her questions, Ali filed a complaint at Sheshadripuram police station for putting her life in danger by wrongly diagnosing with cancer and administering wrong medication.
