An 18-month-old girl, Komali, died in Visakhapatnam without getting any treatment after the hospital refused to accept the demonetized Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes from her parents on Saturday. 
The infant, Komali, daughter of a watchman Adari Ganesh at Kakatiya ITI in Gajuwaka, had been suffering from high fever for quite some time and was being treated at King George Hospital.
Her parents then took her to private hospital when her condition did not improve. 
Doctors in the hospital referred her to diagnostic laboratory medical tests to confirm viral fever, but did not accept the old notes.
The mother, Lakshmi Sarada, claimed that had the hospital accepted the money, Komali would have got timely medical care and survived. 
“We came to know that the family had old currency notes. But the hospital authorities did not accept them. They returned home without the tests. The watchman's neighbours collected lower denomination notes to help the hapless man. But the money was just sufficient for the medical tests. They returned home on Friday night as they did not have money to buy medicines. The girl died a few hours later,” G Kiran Kumar, a neighbour told Times of India.
The parents had to struggle to perform her funeral rites as they were left with no money.
Few days ago, demonetisation of notes kept son and two daughter of a worker in AP from seeing their father for the last time and performing his last rites. The three children were reportedly working as construction labourers in Hyderabad asked their mother to perform the last rites.
