Apollo case: Parents seek chargesheet, visit CM's house

Kolkata: Though the West Bengal Medical Council (WBMC) has suspended the licence of three doctors attached to Apollo Gleneagles Hospital owing to medical negligence behind the death of a four-month-old child, police have failed to submit the chargesheet of the case which was registered on April 19, 2017.

On Monday, the parents of the child went to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's house with an appeal to meet her. As Banerjee was not there, they were assured that they will be called soon to meet her. They have also submitted a letter at Phoolbagan police station, requesting them to submit the chargesheet at the earliest.

Avijit Chakraborty, father of Kuheli Chakraborty - the child who died due to medical negligence, said: "We went to the Chief Minister's house but she was not there. We were assured by her office there that they will arrange a meeting with her soon." He further alleged that despite the WBMC suspending the licences of the three guilty doctors, police have not yet filed the chargesheet. On Monday, he was reportedly told by the police that they have not received any letter from WBMC regarding suspension of the three doctors.

"I will contact WBMC on Tuesday to know why they did not send any intimation to the police. However, police officials assured me that the chargesheet will be submitted soon," added Chakraborty.
