Delhi court suspends FIR against doctor in case of medical negligence | Delhi News

NEW DELHI: A court in Delhi has postponed the registration of FIR against a doctor at Lok Nayak Hospital in a case related to alleged medical negligence in the treatment of a kidney from a patient in 2005.
Additional sessions Judge Charu Aggarwal, in a preliminary ruling, adjourned the decision of the Magistrate’s Court, which directed the registration of the FIR against the doctor for alleged medical negligence.
The judge had passed the ruling on the complaint from Ravindra Nath Dubey, who claimed that Dr. Yogesh Kumar Sarin, who was head of pediatrics at Lok Nayak Hospital at the time, performed a nephrectomy on his son and removed his kidney without consent.
By challenging the order, Sarin claimed through criminal lawyer Namit Saxena that he received written consent from the complainant and was also acquitted in five inquiries.
The lawyer told the court that Sarin has been the chief physician at Lok Nayak Hospital for the last 16 years and various medical committees including Delhi Medical Council gave him a clean mood during that period.
The trial judge in the November 23 ruling said: “With respect to the reports of various medical boards, including the Delhi Medical Council, the contested ruling is hereby adjourned until further rulings, without prejudice to the rights and claims of the parties on the merits of the case.”
During the case, Saxena claimed that the doctor was falsely implicated and that the complainant harassed him.
He also presented the reports from all the committees by which clean clothes were given to Sarin.
The lawyer argued that the court, while ruling on the contested ruling on the complaint filed in 2016, did not appreciate the reports from various medical boards, which noted that there was no medical negligence.
Meanwhile, the complainant’s lawyer stated that the contested order was adopted after understanding all the facts and circumstances of the case and that therefore no basis for adjournment was presented.
The case is now due to be heard on 30 November.
