Calcutta High Court turns down NRI's plea
Kolkata, Feb 22 (UNI) Calcutta High Court today threw out a non-resident Indian's plea challenging West Bengal Medical Council's verdict acquitting three city-based eminent doctors in Anuradha Saha death case.
Justice Joyanta Biswas turned down the petition on the ground of insufficient evidence against the doctors as alleged by the petitioner.
Kunal Saha, now resident of the United States, alleged that his wife Anuradha died because of negligence and rash treatment of three doctors - Sukumar Mukherjee, Abani Roy Chowdhury and Baidyanath Haldar.
Mr Saha had moved the State Medical Council seeking cancellation of registration of the three doctors.
The Council dismissed his prayer, saying the doctors were not responsible for his wife's death.
Earlier, a city court imposed fine on Dr Mukherjee on the plea of Mr Saha.
Dr Saha' wife was admitted to a city nursing home with severe skin disease and then shifted to Mumbai's Beach Candy Hospital when her condition deteriorated. She died at Beach Candy Hospital.
