PBT Demands Full Investigation And Exemplary Punishment Of all Police Officers Involved With Fabricated Case Against Innocent PBT Members And Victims of Medical Negligence

PBT today filed an urgent petition with Kolkata Police Commissioner, Mr. Surajit Kar Purkayastha, seeking full investigation of Tuesday’s (May 20) falsified charges and blatant arrest of several PBT members and victims of medical negligence who gathered to peacefully protest against selection of Dr. Sukumar Mukherjee, doctor convicted by Supreme Court for causing death of Anuradha Saha, with the prestigious “Bangabhibushan” award by Bengal chief minister, Ms. Mamata Banerjee.  PBT has also demanded that Police Commissioner must take exemplary disciplinary action against the police officers who were involved with this botched operation against innocent PBT members and victims of medical malpractice within a period of 7 days failing which PBT may take appropriate legal action against the Bengal police department.  After the deplorable attack on PBT members and victims of medical negligence who came to attend PBT’s peaceful demonstration by a rogue police force, wide-spread public uproar has erupted across West Bengal against the dictatorial leadership by the Mamata Banerjee government.  Incidentally, Calcutta High Court has show-caused Banerjee government directing them to file affidavit within two weeks explaining how a doctor who was convicted for “medical negligence” with scathing observations by the Apex Court could be bestowed with the highest honor in medicine by the State.
