New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday asked US-based Dr Kunal Saha, who lost his wife in 1998 in Kolkata due to medical negligence and subsequently won a record compensation from the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) against the hospital and the negligent doctors but still continued to pursue the case for cancellation of practice licence of those doctors, to let his wife’s soul rest in peace.
“There are several wrongs that happen in life and court cannot right certain wrongs. Your wife died 19 years ago. Let her soul rest in peace. The doctors and the hospital have been punished as you won record compensation. You are pursuing the litigation because you are not at peace,” Chief Justice J S Khehar said while refusing to entertain Dr Saha’s petition.
