Bagalkot, March 05: Family members of a 27-year-old man who was injured in a road accident have alleged that doctors declared him dead and sent him for post-mortem, where he was found alive.
Shankar Gombi, who suffered head injuries at Mahalingpur in Bagalkot, was referred to a private hospital in Belagavi recently.
