Two doctors booked under Section 304A (causing death by negligence) of IPC

Mumbai : Six years after a bungled caesarian procedure left a woman and her newborn baby dead, two doctors, then attached to Rajawadi Hospital, have been booked under Section 304A (causing death by negligence) of IPC. Two panels of experts one from Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and another from the JJ Hospital blamed the two resident medical officers for lapses during the C-section. No arrests have been made yet, said officers from the Tilak Nagar police station.

According to the deceased husband, Sohrab Ansari, her wife Rukhsana went into labour on 20th September, 2016 wherein he rushed her wife to Rajawadi Hospital. The two resident doctor on duty informed Anasari that an urgent surgery was needed for which Ansari consented. In the night he was informed by the Rajawadi doctors that the newborn baby boy was dead and her wife was extremely critical. In the morning of the next day he was advised to shift his wife to Sion Hospital. Ansari said he was shocked when doctors at Sion hospital told him that C-section performed by Rajawadi doctors was botched and had resulted in profuse bleeding. Rukhsana died at Sion hospital on the morning of September 22.

The Tilak Nagar police station filed an accidental death report or ADR, but Ansari complained of lapses and demanded a probe. “As per the report and opinion issued by BMC and JJ’s expert committee, we have registered an FIR against both the doctors. They have been booked under IPC section 304A [causing death by negligence] and 34 [common intention],” said Sunil Kale, senior inspector of Tilak Nagar police station. “We are trying to ascertain their whereabouts and will arrest them soon.”
