Allegation of medical negligence has now surfaced in regard to the death of a highly-respected retired chief justice of India (CJI), J.S. Verma, who recently died in a private hospital. It is reported that wife of Justice Verma lodged a complaint with the prime minister’s office (PMO) seeking prime minister’s intervention to find justice for the wrongful death of her husband. Thirty-four eminent citizens including several senior advocates have also approached PMO seeking impartial investigation and justice for the departed ex-CJI. The prime minister has assured that responsibility will be fixed if it is found that Justice Verma died as a result of medical negligence. According to published reports, PMO has forwarded the complaint to the health ministry for a thorough investigation of this matter. PBT has also sent a memorandum to PMO seeking a transparent investigation and equitable justice for the unfortunate death of Justice Verma from alleged medical malpractice.
