Kolkata: Dr Mani Chhetri and Dr Pronab Dasgupta, two doctors on the AMRI Hospitals board, were arrested on Friday and charged with culpable homicide not amounting to murder in the AMRI fire case. The Alipore court sent the doctors to the central lock-up at Lalbazar for a week.
Dr Chhetri, 91, managing director of AMRI Hospitals since its inception in the mid-90s, was the licensee on behalf of the hospital. Dr Dasgupta, a reputable gynaecologist in his sixties, who is attached to at least half-a-dozen top hospitals in the city, had been on the board since 2003.
“Both (the doctors) were part of meetings where all the strategic decisions were taken and were aware of the wrong-doings in the hospital’s basement. We have documentary proof against them,” said joint commissioner of police (crime) Damayanti Sen. [Source: Telegraph]
