The National Consumer Commission on Thursday dismissed the medical negligence claim to the tune of Rs 143 crore filed by a US-based doctor who had alleged that his wife died because of negligence given at a Kolkata hospital.

The National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission Bench comprising Justice MB Shah, Justice KS Gupta and Member Rajya Lakshmi, in its judgement, absolved five Kolkata-based doctors -- Sukumar Mukherjee, Balram Prasad, Kaushik Nandi, Abani Roy Chaudhary, all of Advanced Medical Research Institute (AMRI) Apollo Hospital, and Vaidyanath Haldhar from charges of medical negligence.

Kunal Saha, in his complaint, had alleged that doctors at AMRI-Apollo Hospital had administered an "unscientific overdose of highly toxic steroid" to his wife Anuradha, which resulted into her death.
