The High Court has sent fake physician of Patuakhali Razan Das, who left gauze inside a woman’s abdomen during her cesarean surgery at a private hospital, to jail.
A bench of Justice Salma Masud Chowdhury and Justice AKM Jahirul Haque passed the order on Monday after he surrendered before it.
The court also asked Supreme Court Deputy Registrar (Justice and Admin) Mohammad Akhtaruzzaman to file case against four people, including Razon Das, owner of the Niramoy Private Clinic, nurse and assistant of the fake doctor.
Meanwhile, the court set day after tomorrow to deliver its order on plea seeking compensation in the case.
On November 16, the High Court directed the officer-in-charge of Baufal Police Station in Patuakhali to arrest the fake physician and produce him before it within December 10.
The court also asked the Patuakhali police to take help of Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) if necessary.
Earlier on July 23, the same bench summoned three people, including Patuakhali civil surgeon and gynecology department head of Barisal Medical College, in this connection.
Supreme Court lawyer Md Shahid Ullah drew the attention of the HC placing a newspaper report in this regard on July 22.
On November 6, the Patuakhali civil surgeon submitted a probe report to the court stating that Razon Das had been using fake certificate of doctor. He conducted a cesarean surgery on a pregnant woman in Niramoy Private Clinic in Patuakhali and left gauze inside her abdomen in May.
Victim Maksuda Begum, 25, gave birth to a baby girl but her physical condition started to deteriorate after two months.
On July 12, the doctors of Sher-e-Bangla Medical College and Hospital detected the gauze inside her abdomen and removed it by another surgery.
