The Supreme Court today has admitted a major case against “medical negligence” as well as against a devious move by the Medical Council of India (MCI) while staying simultaneous proceedings in the Andhra Pradesh High Court.
Dr. K. Srikar Reddy, a diplomat and physician as well as long time PBT supporter, argued his own case before the Apex Court today against anaesthetist Dr. L. Sudhakar, gynaecologist Dr. Malathi as well as Shalini Maternity Hospital in Hyderbad where his wife and unborn child died in 2003 during the course of a routine delivery from alleged gross medical negligence. Recently, PBT president, Dr. Kunal Saha, also argued his own case before the Supreme Court and had four top doctors and AMRI Hospital in Kolkata held guilty for the death of his wife, Anuradha Saha, in a historic judgment passed on August 7, 2009.
Another PBT member, Mr. Mihir Banerjee, also argued his own case before the Apex Court last August in search of justice for the wrongful death of his only12-year old daughter. The SC has also issued a notice against the errant doctor in that case. Dr. Reddy’s courageous performance before the chief justice of India (CJI) today would definitely encourage other victims of medical malpractice to come forward and present their own case for justice.
PBT will extend complete support to all victims of “medical negligence” in their search for justice. Contact PBT for any questions about “medical negligence”.
