Doctors stole my minor son’s kidney, says Rajasthan man

Doctors in Rajasthan stole the Kidney of a minor Child and left him to die. A Father  has complained that doctors at a state-run hospital stole a kidney of his two-year-old son undergoing treatment. A court has ordered registration of cases against some doctors.

The child died June 13 at SMS Hospital here about six days after he was admitted, police added.

Ramu Kashyap, a resident of Mahua town in Dausa district, some 50 km from Jaipur, said he admitted his son Gaurav to the hospital June 8.

“Kashyap says that the doctors were to operate upon Gaurav’s hand. The surgery was carried out on June 9,” investigation officer Bharat Singh told IANS.

“He said in the complaint that the doctors kept telling him that his son was well and would be discharged soon,” said the officer.

However, his son was declared dead June 13. “Kashyap claims that there were marks of stitches on the boy’s stomach and back. He says that his son’s kidney was removed,” said the officer.

“Kashyap approached a court after his son’s death. After hearing his case, the court ordered the police to register a first information report (FIR) against Dr. Pradeep Goyal and some resident doctors. The court orders reached us Friday evening. We have launched an investigation,” the officer added.

The doctors were booked under penal provisions for punishment for culpable homicide not amounting to murder and criminal conspiracy, he said.
