South Korea’s human rights watchdog on Monday filed a complaint to the prosecution against a local mental hospital for allegedly causing the death of a patient by physically restraining him for 124 hours.

A 52-year-old man, known by his surname Lee, died immediately after he was released from a bed to which his limbs had been constrained for five straight days by the hospital officials, the state-run National Human Rights Commission said in a statement.
