Nirmal Maji, W.B. Medical Council President And Powerful Trinomool Minister Skips Court To Face Criminal Charges Due To “Knee Problems”

Dr. Nirmal Maji, a powerful minister in Mamata Banerjee government and sitting president of West Bengal Medical Council (WBMC) did not appear before the Special Court (for MLAs/MPs) in Barasat, Kolkata to face criminal charges in two separate cases as his lawyers claimed that Dr. Maji was too ill with “knee problems”. The two cases against Dr. Maji were filed in 2018 by PBT president, Dr. Kunal Saha, for alleged money laundering (under IPC section 409) and criminal defamation (IPC section 500/501). Dr. Maji has already surrendered in both cases as he remains free on bail. The first case emerged from Dr. Maji’s role in hatching a shocking plan to dialysis of a pet dog at the state’s premier tertiary care center, SSKM Hospital in Kolkata while the second case emerged after it was found out that Dr. Maji was using funds from state medical council to cover expenses related to his personal litigations. The Special Court has adjourned both cases to 21st March, 2020.

    A few days ago Dr. N. Mazi attended a Consumer Forum function at Netaji Indoor Stadium where he delivered a long lecture and he appeared to be in good health.
    In that function I was present. So, it appears his Ill health plea is incorrect.

    Based on what he was trying to do, he should be compulsorily admitted to a veterinary hospital!

    My family is also a victim of medical negligence. I’ve started the petition “Medical Council of India, Lilavati Hospital: Cancel License, expel Corrupt Nephrologist Hemant Mehta, Prashant Rajput who killed my Mom”.

    Will you take 30 seconds to sign it right now. Here’s the link:

    Where was his knee problem on 28th January 2020 when he publicly attended Calcutta Medical College’s foundation day event without invitation & referred to medical students as “dogs” when they protested his presence, as mentioned in media reports

    Fact is that petitions etc. may raise awareness but that is about all. For more you have to take legal recourse howsoever convoluted that may be. Therein, typically a single sufferer is fighting against full might of a big business with a battery of lawyers and other personnel. I have learnt a lot in my fight ( including becoming a lawyer myself ! ) and any sufferer is welcome to contact me for whatsoever support I can provide. Mobile 9810290988 Delhi
