According to the reports, the 21-year-old actor was admitted to the hospital on May 16 to undergo fat-free plastic surgery.
The TV star got admitted to the hospital on Monday (May 16) morning and underwent a ‘fat free’ surgery. The actress reportedly faced slight changes in her health during the evening hours as water started accumulating in her lungs.
According to the sources, the actress didn’t inform her parents about the surgery and went along with her friends to the hospital. However, she developed complications that claimed her life.
As per the report, the late actress’ parents are currently claiming that it was the doctor’s negligence that led to the untimely death of their daughter. A police complaint has been lodged against the hospital committee by the late actress’ parents in the nearby police station.
The police report read, “At around 5:30pm today, one doctor named Melvin who is an anaesthetist barged into our hospitalwith a patient (who was found unresponsive later) disregarding all the protocols of the hospital and threatening our security badly. Before our doctors could intervene and check the patient, he pushed the patient into our ICU and demanded that our doctors treat the patient on the lines indicated by him as the patient had suffered a Cardiac Arrest during some procedure at their hospital M/s Dr Shetty’s Cosmetic Centre, situated in Rajajinagar, Near Navrang Theater, Bangalore.No patient file or or doctors recommendatory notes or any other document depicting her conditionwas produced to us. On checking the patient she was found to have ‘No Pulse’ and on the insistence of Dr Melvin and team, CPR was initiated and after trying for approximately 45 minutes the patient
could not be revived as it appeared that she was Brought Dead. Our doctors were forced to toe the line of Dr Melvin & team with threats and though they were aware that the patient was Brought dead they were coerced into declaring only at 06:45pm, for the reasons best known to them. We strongly object to this kind of behaviour by these doctors and if necessary we may decide to file a report against them. This report is being sent to to you to bring to your notice this incident which does not appear normal”
Currently, Chethana’s body is at the hospital. Her body will be shifted to Ramaiah hospital later in the morning hours for post-mortem.
Chethana had worked in daily soap like Geetha and Doresani.
