Mumbai, Dec 12: In a bizarre incident in Mumbai, a 50-year old man Chandrakant Gangurde, declared dead by doctors, wakes up suddenly when the ventilator was removed.

Police have registered a case under section of the IPC for 336 (Act endangering life or personal safety) against the doctor for making wrong assumptions.

"We have booked the doctor for the act endangering a person's life. Further action will be taken after the probe report from the medical council. The doctor thought that Gangurde was dead and even removed the oxygen supply but all of a sudden he woke up," said a cop.

The patient was admitted to the hospital in Sion on December 5 and was kept on a ventilator when his condition deteriorated.

While registering a complaint against the doctor, Gangurde's son Atul said,"The doctor asked us to inform all our relatives that my father has died. He told us that he can't see any sign of movement from my father and stopped the oxygen supply. Minutes later I learnt that my father is still alive."
