Supreme Court Held a Doctor as “Reckless” and “Unbecoming As a Doctor”, Mamata Banerjee Calls the Same Doctor as “Global Best” and Selects Him To Combat COVID-19 Pandemic In West Bengal

Dr. Sukumar Mukherjee is known all over India as the worst negligent physician against whom highest ever compensation (Rs. 11.5 crore) in Indian medical history was awarded by Supreme Court of India for causing death of Anuradha Saha, wife of PBT president Dr. Kunal Saha. While awarding the highest compensation in 2013, Apex Court also held Dr. Mukherjee as the most reckless physician whose was personal conduct was also so unethical that it was “very much unbecoming of a doctor”. Contrast the scathing Supreme Court’s view to what Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee thinks about the same Dr. Mukherjee today as the state and whole country is ravaged by COVID-19. Mamata Banerjee just dubbed Dr. Mukherjee as “Global Best” in half-page paid advertisements (in tax-payers’ money) in all major dailies in West Bengal today as she lauded the tainted doctor and selected him (and few others) to an elite Board of experts to advise the state government how to control the coronavirus pandemic (see below).

Can the most reckless, negligent, and unethical doctor also be the “global best” to combat COVID-19? Is there no other competent doctor with intact character in West Bengal who is also knowledgeable about coronaviruses? Ironically, Dr. Mukherjee is not a virologist or known to have ever performed viral research as he was a regular internist and retired professor in medicine. Most importantly, by branding a doctor as “Global Best” who was already found guilty for gross medical negligence by the Apex Court, did Bengal CM not clearly violate Article 144 of Indian Constitution that mandates that all authorities, civil and judicial, shall act in aid of the Supreme Court? Ordinary people and countless victims of medical negligence in West Bengal already know the answers to these burning questions.

    absolutely right…most corrupt person often rewarded with prestigious rewards in India…no surprise
    the higher you go…more disappointment
    you are having a rare case to get justice…because you fought your case with own expertise in medical science,law and off course you wee not among the middle class person sitting in some state of India wasting time with state medical councils.
    ..having extremely bad experience with MCI as well…
    With strong evidence still fighting with corrupt system and dis honest,negligent doctors

    Unfortunately its the collusion of politicians, law enforcement and corrupt/negligent doctor’s that had deteriorated the healthcare system in India to a new low. The corona virus pandemic has also exposed the rampant inadequacy, negligence and corruption present in Indian healthcare system.

    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:

    Dr Sukumar Mukherjee is just shielding the the doctors from the allegation of medical negligence as a member of WBCERC also.
