Highlights

  • Dr. Kafeel Khan, a neonatologist working at BRD medical college in UP, was accused of medical negligence and was held responsible for the deaths of over 60 infants
  • He was recently cleared of the charges on account of lack of evidence, after spending over 6 months in jail.
  • He claims to have been a “scapegoat” for the management’s negligence

Dr. Kafeel Khan, a neonatologist at Baba Raghav Das Medical college, was suspended in August 2017 for medical negligence and held responsible for the death of 63 infants. An inquiry was set up, and Khan has now been freed of all allegations and charges.

What’s the verdict?

It has been concluded that he was not guilty of medical negligence, neither was he the nodal officer of the encephalitis ward where the incident occurred.

The incident revolved around the fact that there was a severe shortage of oxygen cylinders in the wards, leading to the death of many critically ill infants.

Khan was held accountable at the time, but now has been cleared of any such allegations because he was not involved in the process of handling the oxygen cylinders. He was arrested last year, after the incident, but due to lack of any evidence against him, was sent out on bail.

It was also noted that he had informed his seniors about the problem and paid out of his own pocket to fund the shortage.

Dr. Khan stated that he was a “scapegoat” for something that the hospital management should have been held accountable for.
