After successful heart surgery in India, infant dies of dehydration in Pakistan”

In a heartbreaking event, a four-month-old infant, who came to India last month all the way from Pakistan to undergo lifesaving heart surgery, passed away on Monday night. According to his family, Rohaan was down with diarrhoea after his return from India and died on Monday.

Rohaan's family had got medical visa for India after his father made an appeal to Sushma Swaraj on twitter seeking her help to get medical treatment for his child.

Rohaan was brought to India on July 12 and was operated on July 14 by a team of doctors led by Dr Rajesh Sharma, Director of Paediatric Cardiac Surgery Department at Jaypee Hospital in Noida.

Rohaan's father Kanwal Sadiq said that the baby died because of dehydration.

However, despite the successful surgery, Rohaan passed away. "He fought and conquered with major heart surgery but slipped and fell in grave due to little dehydration".

Rohaan had received medical visa for a life saving heart surgery in India after External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had intervened. Doctors had performed an arterial switch with VSD closure method on him which lasted for around five hours.

Siddiqui unable to fetch medical visa on May 24 had tweeted, "Why my bud suffers for medical treatment! Any answers Sir Sartaaj Azeez or Ma'am Sushma??"

Sushma Swaraj had replied to that saying, "No".

Swaraj said, "The child will not suffer". Available on Android and IOS.
