Four Doctors booked under sec 304(A) for negligence

Gurugram: Four doctors of a private hospital here have been booked under sections 304-A (death due to negligence) and 34 (common intention) of the IPC for their alleged negligence of duties that eventually led to the death of Amit Kataria, 22-year-old UK citizen who was hospitalised in a critical condition after an accident, officials said on Sunday.

The doctors at the hospital, despite several tests, could not ascertain why the deceased’s lungs were filling up with blood, the complainant told the police, adding that the doctors administered heavy direct electric shocks and resumed cardiopulmonary resuscitation.“The negligent act led to the unnatural death of my son. Later, the doctor who performed the autopsy confirmed that his son’s lungs had burst and not punctured,” he told the police.

Thereafter, the complainant approached the district Medical Negligence Board, which also confirmed the autopsy report.The board found the allegation to be true. After this, he reported the matter to the Sector 50 police station.“Based on the report, an FIR has been registered against the doctors. After verifying the facts, appropriate action will be taken as per law,” said Sub-Inspector Dharambir Singh of Sector 50 police station.
