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.
