I can’t beleive they used a chisle to cut her open, and eight year old, in a hospital!! you’d expect India to be improved!! far from it! Money in organs alwats wins!!!
This story was broken to me by Keith Kendrick on parentdish on May 15, 2013.
How sad and terribly backwards huminity has come!
Gukiren Kaur Loyal, An eight-year-old girl’s was born in Britian to Indian Sihks. Her devastated parents say she was killed by Indian doctors – for profit.
Living in Hockley, Birmingham, the family went on holiday to India when she was struck with a mild case of dehydration last month.
Parents Amrit and Santokh took their daughter to a health clinic and all hell broke lose.
The schoolgirl dropped dead seconds after a worker at the Punjabi clinic injected her with a mysterious liquid.
The parents kept watch on dead Gurkiren so that her organs died before they could be used in transplant operations. But to no avial; body parts were still removed in a ‘medieval’ post-mortem examination using a hammer and chisel – to disguise the cause of death. Sadly, only her eyes remained – so its impossible for UK medics to say how she died.
Amrit, 50, told a local news agency: “My baby was innocent and now I am devastated without her. Gurkiren was fine, she was chatting to us and planned to buy some gifts for her cousins.
“While we were talking an assistant came up carrying a pre-filled syringe and reached for the tube in her hand.
“I asked what was the injection for, but he gave me a blank look and injected the liquid into her.
“Within a split-second Gurkiren’s head flipped back, her eyes rolled in her head, and the colour completely drained from her. I knew they had killed her on the spot.
“I knew my innocent child had been murdered. They said they would use a hammer and chisel to open her but I demanded a more dignified, discreet examination.”
Amrit said the family was reassured that a dignified and respectful autopsy would be carried out. It wasnt! Gurkiren’s blood-spattered and torn clothes were found by an incinerator. The devastated shop assistant and her postal worker husband gave statements to Indian police but said there was no evidence Gurkiren’s death had been investigated.
Once her body was flown home, the couple, had a UK post-mortem performed on their daughter. But nothign could prepare them when Birmingham coroner Aidan Cotter phoned to say that no cause of death could be found.
“He said it was impossible to come to a conclusion for the cause of death.”They had nothing to work from, she had no organs in her body for them to take samples. “I was mortified that all the pleading in India had no effect. There was no sensitivity, no humanity.” Officials are awaiting return of Gurkiren’s organs from India.
The Foreign Office confirmed that Gurkiren died on April 2 in India.
A spokesperson said: “We can confirm the death of a British national in Punjab on April 2, 2013. We provided consular assistance to the family at this difficult time.”
Birmingham Labour MP Shabana Mahmood has pledged to assist Gurkiren’s family in establishing the cause of her death. “This is a deeply shocking and devastating tragedy,” she said.
“Gurkiren’s death, and the failure of the Indian authorities and the British High Commission to provide adequate support to the family, has added to their considerable distress – as has the appalling removal of all of her organs.
“I have raised this matter urgently with ministers at the Foreign Office seeking their support in ensuring Gurkiren’s organs are returned to her family.
“It is imperative that we have the chance to independently establish the cause of death with the authorities in the UK.”
