"Our family deserves to know why Chinenye died" Family of young woman who died in India hospital seek justice

A devastated family is seeking for answer and justice seven months after their young daughter died in a  hospital in New Delhi, India. According to Sahara Reporters, the family has yet to  receive autopsy results or any other details explaining the cause of her  death.
"Since the age of 16, Chinenye had experienced ongoing pain in her leg  after a bad fall. In 2015, shortly after graduating from the University  of Abuja, Chinenye went to Fortis Hospital in New Delhi to undergo  surgery conducted by one Dr. Dhananjay Gupta that would fix her leg and  alleviate the pain.
Three days after the surgery, Chinenye began to  experience pain in  her leg. She returned to the hospital to have a screw in her leg  changed. While the screw was being changed by one Dr. Rahul Kaul, she  lost consciousness and was declared dead shortly thereafter. Chinenye’s  mother asked that the doctor make an effort to resuscitate her, but her  request was ignored,

"In October 11, 2015, an autopsy was conducted on Chinenye without  requesting permission from her family. The family has reached out to the  hospital several times to receive results of the autopsy to no avail. 
After getting in contact with Dr. Gupta, Chinenye’s mother was told  that the hospital did not have access to the autopsy report because it  is “a police matter.” He added that the Ministry of External Affairs is  handling the situation, but he refused to give Chinenye’s mother any  details regarding this alleged investigation.
The victim’s family is left wondering what caused the untimely death  of their daughter. While Dr. Gupta said the official cause of death was a  severe heart attack, the medical superintendent cited breathlessness as  the cause of death.
Chinenye’s family and friends have since written letters and staged  peaceful protests at the Indian embassies in Lagos and Abuja, but their  efforts have thus far been futile."

"Our family deserves to know why Chinenye died. It’s about  justice," her sister said. "We have heard numerous stories of how  Nigerians have been fleeced  and treated without regard in their desperate quest to seek good health.  Let it end today."
