Malda (WB): A 17-year-old boy suffering from
cold and fever, has fled from a district hospital in Malda as he
was not admitted in the isolation ward meant for swine flu
patients.

Anikul Sheikh, resident of Sujanpur area, was admitted to
the Malda District Sadar Hospital on Thursday after he
complained of swine flu symptoms for the past few days,
officials said Saturday.

Sheikh had returned from Mumbai about 20 days back and
suspected that he was suffering from the viral infection.

As the hospital did not admit him in the isolation ward,
he fled, police said.
