Two doctors of the BRD Medical College Hospital, including in-charge of the encephalitis ward Dr. Kafeel Khan, had been suspended in connection with the death of more than 60 children there earlier this month.
In-charge of the 100-bed AES ward Dr. Khan and in-charge of Anaesthesia Dr. Satish had been suspended after the State government’s approval, principal of the medical college Dr. P. K. Singh said.
The probe committee headed by Chief Secretary Rajive Kumar had recommended initiating criminal action against the then principal of the medical college Dr. Satish, Dr. Khan and M/s Pushpa Sales Pvt Ltd.
With this, seven persons had been suspended following the deaths in the State-run hospital due to alleged lack of oxygen supply. Besides the then principal Dr. Rajiv Kumar Mishra, three employees and a pharmacist had also been suspended, Dr. Singh said.
