Ambala, Nov 26 (UNI) Haryana Police today registered a case of negligence against a local government doctor who removed both the kidneys of a woman patient who had stones in her kidney.
The doctor had allegedly removed both the kidneys of patient Kanta Rani during an operation to remove the stones in kidney at the civil hospital last month.
Police conducted a thorough enquiry at civil hospital and the PGI Chandigarh where Kanta is now struggling for life.
The doctors in the PGI had confirmed that both the kidneys were removed and she had been put on dialysis since then.
Following a complaint made by the husband of the victim, a panel of three doctors, headed by CMO O P Arya, conducted an enquiry and found that the kidneys removed during the operation were found in a laboratory.
The report said that both the kidneys were intertwined with each other and the doctor operating the patient should have consulted the hospital authorities in the case.
The report said the action of the doctor had created suspicion.
However, the report did not throw light whether the kidneys were removed under conspiracy or due to negligence.
After its enquiry, police registered a case against surgeon Sudhir Kapur under section 336 IPC for negligence in operating the patient, SHO Rajesh Kumar said.
Superintendent of Police K V Ramanna said the kidneys had been sent to the PGI for examination.
