A CITY court has ordered an an FIR to be registered against the doctors and the management of the Apollo Hospital for misleading the police by fabricating and manipulating records. The intent: to help Rahul Mahajan escape from the law in the alleged drugs abuse case against him.

With the progress of the preliminary investigation into the drug overdose episode, it is becoming clear that Apollo tried to shield Rahul from the beginning. Tampered patient entries, altered handwritten records and a contradictory Medico Legal Report (MLC) are going against the doctors.

As per the MLC, Rahul was brought to the hospital in an unconscious condition with blood pressure (BP) and pulse rate (PR) a little below normal (95/65 and 83 respectively) on June 2. Hospital documents show Rahul's condition improved in the next few days and his BP was 100/60 and PR was near normal at 85. Considering that the MLC declared Rahul 'stable and conscious', police now want to know why the doctors did not let them question Rahul.
