This is not the first time such incident happened at the hospital. The woman claimed that the medical staff "had also left pieces of cotton and flesh inside her while she went there for her child's delivery in 2013", according to ANI.

"In 2017 she underwent surgical sterilisation, following which she began experiencing pain. We took her to the doctor and they operated on her finding 2 syringes inside her body. Then they asked her to get an X-Ray done and we found there were 3 more syringes inside," the woman's husband was quoted as saying by ANI. 

The city police said that they have received a complaint from the woman's husband and that investigation in the case has begun.

In another case of medical negligence, a woman had died in December last year at a private hospital in Soraon town of Allahabad after doctors allegedly left scissors in her abdomen during a caesarean delivery, Hindustan Times had reported.

The woman was admitted to the Mother and Child Hospital in Soraon for the delivery of her child. She delivered a baby in October via caesarean section and the hospital discharged her after a few days.

However, the woman continued to complain of severe pain in her abdomen and died eventually. An ultrasound test had showed scissors in her abdomen, the report had said.
