Jaskaran Singh, son of Harbans Singh, accused a private hospital of performing a neuro-surgery of his father without any need just to make money.

Jaskaran Singh said that his father Harbans Singh of Gehri Butter village had met with an accident on February 25.

He brought him to the civil hospital here, but he was referred to the Max Hospital. Jaskaran said that the doctors at the private hospital advised for head surgery, which was conducted on February 26.

He alleged that the hospital authorities charged as much as Rs 10 lakh for the surgery, but his father’s condition became critical day by day.

He alleged that the surgery was also not needed. He took his father to the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, on March 28 because of his critical condition where he improved. However, at present, Harbans is admitted to a local private hospital here.

Jaskaran alleged that doctors of Max Super specialty hospital are responsible for his father’s condition and demanded an enquiry by a medical board. However, authorities of Max hospital denied the allegations and said that the surgery was needed going by the condition of the patient.

“The patient was kept on ventilator support as per requirement and he was showing improvement signs but the family members took him from the hospital.
