Chief medical officer Dr Shantimal Singhavi has ordered to set up an inquiry against a pathology centre at Baraut in Handia area. A resident of Baraut had made a complaint to the CMO and other senior officers alleging that his 17-year-old son died due to negligence of medical staff during surgery at the pathology centre.

 Following the CMO's order the inquiry officer has issued two registered notices to the owner of the pathology centre. The owner has also been asked to personally appear before the inquiry committee and submit his written explanation.

Reportedly resident of Baraut village Badedin had made a complaint to the CMO and senior officers that his son Mahesh Kumar died during surgery at Chote Lal Pathology and X ray centre at Baraut in Handia. He alleged that the surgery was performed by local doctors on January 23, 2006 who were not even surgeons. Mahesh Kumar's condition suddenly became serious during surgery and he died in the operation theatre.

According to Badedin, his son Mahesh was suffering from pain in his abdomen and was admitted to the centre on January 10, 2006. He also alleged that the doctors pressurised him to not to take this matter to the higher level and his son's body was also not handed over to him.

Inquiry officer Dr VK Mishra said a registered notice was sent to the owner of the Chote Lal Pathology and X ray centre following the complaints of Badedin. But the owner failed to turn up before the inquiry committee on the scheduled date due to which a second notice was sent to him. This time the owner has been warned of strict action in case he failed to submit his written explanation to the committee, he informed.

Dr Mishra said it seems to be a matter of medical negligence.

The charges made by Badedin that he was not handed over his son's body and the surgery was performed by some local inexperienced doctor was also very serious. Both the complaints would be thoroughly investigated, he added.
