The court has given notice to the Joint Police Commissioner asking him to explain why the investigation was not completed. The next hearing of the case will be on July 27.
A child had a brain disease since birth. The doctors in the hospital where the child was born could not diagnose the disease. On demand of the child, a case was registered with the police. But the police could not even complete the investigation in four years. When the whole matter reached the Delhi court, the magistrate’s temper rose. The court has given notice to the Joint Police Commissioner asking him to file a reply in all the cases. The Metropolitan Magistrate fixed the matter for further hearing on July 27.
Devarsh Jain was paralyzed at birth in August 2017. But the problem was detected after seven months. He is five years old now. Devarsh’s parents allege that Fortis Hospital in Shalimar Bagh deliberately concealed the problems he had at birth, due to which he could not be treated on time. However, the hospital has denied all these allegations.
Sapna Jain gave birth to Devarsh Jain at Fortis Hospital in Shalimar Bagh. Metropolitan Magistrate Ritika Kansal, in an order passed on June 30, said that the investigating officers have not yet filed any report other than the mechanical report. He did not even bother to collect the medical records of the victim from the accused hospital.
The court asked the Joint Commissioner – why the investigation was not completed, tell
The court issued a notice to the Joint Commissioner of Police asking the reason for not completing the investigation. The Metropolitan Magistrate noted that the state report filed by the investigating officer in the Rohini court had mentioned that one of the two doctors accused of negligence in treating the child had only done MBBS, while no information was available about the educational qualification of the other.
Sapna Jain lodged an FIR in October 2019. Sapna Jain has filed a separate petition in the Delhi HC questioning the educational qualifications of Dr. Vivek Jain and Dr. Akhilesh Singh, who treated her child. The National Medical Commission accepted in the court that Akhilesh Singh is only MBBS. He is not a pediatrician.
