Following appointment of Dr. Sukumar Mukherjee as the “chief adviser” for the West Bengal Health Department by chief minister (who is also the health minister), a PIL has been filed before the Calcutta High Court. Dr. Mukherjee was convicted for medical negligence causing death of Anuradha Saha, wife of PBT president Dr. Kunal Saha, by the Supreme Court of India on August 7, 2009. Dr. Mukherjee’s medical registration has also been suspended by the Medical Council of India (MCI) although West Bengal Medical Council, which is being run by an Adhoc body of 10 doctor-members who are loyal to the Trinomul Congress, refused to take any action against him. Dr. Saha has filed the PIL which should come up for hearing soon. See below the detail story published in Mail Today (Aug. 1, 2012).
