Medical Negligence: Anuradha’s Heart-breaking Story On TV – Youtube

PBT was formed in 2000-2001 to fight medical negligence and to promote a better healthcare system in India by its founding-president and US-based doctor, Kunal Saha, following the tragic death of his wife, Anuradha, who died in 1998 at the prime of their life together during a social visit to India as a result of gross medical negligence by three eminent Kolkata doctors (Sukumar Mukherjee, Baidyanath Halder, late Abani Roychowdhury).  Although Supreme Court of India has held the Kolkata doctors (and AMRI Hospital) guilty for Anuradha’s death in a historic judgment on August 7, 2009, this case is still pending before the Supreme Court of India for ultimate justice for quantum of compensation to be paid by the guilty doctors/hospital (final hearing fixed on January 22, 2013).  While the unfortunate tale of Anuradha is known to countless ordinary people across India, many are  still confused because of the complex medical science involved in this case.  The ABP News (formerly Star News) has made a docu-drama on Anuradha’s story where the medical issues involved in this matter have been explained in great detail.  The entire episode can also be seen in Youtube at the link below:
