A woman was operated upon in torchlight at a hospital in Bihar.

The doctors at the hospital used a torch as there was no electricity in the hospital at the time of surgery.


Media reports say that there was no facility of generator at the hospital and therefore the doctors had no other option.

The video shows a woman on a stretcher in an unconscious state. Many people are seen surrounding and operating her.

The people operating the woman are not dressed in the usual white apron. 

The operation was undertaken at Sardar Hospital in Saharsa, Bihar.

Giving a clarification on the issue, Bihar Health Minister has denied on any operation being conducted under torchlight.

He said that a patient was injured and was given stitches in the dressing room.
