Calcutta High Court sets aside cancellation of registration of three doctors

Agency News

Kolkata, Nov 27: A single-judge bench of Calcutta High Court today set aside a West Bengal Medical Council order of cancellation of the registration of three doctors for medical negligence in treating a four-month-old baby who died at a city hospital on April, 2017.

Justice Sabyasachi Bhattacharya issued the ruling after the three doctors moved the high court challenging the Council's ruling.

The Council had cancelled their registration for three months on the charge in early November, 2019.

Kuheli Chakraborty was admitted to the Apollo Gleneagles Hospital for a colonoscopy and died primarily because of an overdose of anaesthesia.

The parents had alleged medical negligence after the infant died at the hospital on April 19, 2017 and approached the West Bengal Clinical Establishment Regulatory Commission (WBCERC) and the WBMC.

The WBCERC had found lapses on part of the hospital. The medical negligence part was being probed by WBMC. (UNI)
