This Doctors Behaviour Will Shock You: FIR Lodged
The Govandi police on Saturday registered an offence against a doctor for denying to accept the now-banned currency notes of Rs500, eventually leading to the death of a newborn.
The case has been registered against Dr Sheetal Kamat of Jeevan Jyot Hospital at Govandi for causing death by negligence. The police said that the complainant, Jagdish Sharma, a carpenter, lodged a complaint alleging that despite these currency notes in denomination of Rs500 and Rs1,000 ceased to be a legal tender starting from Tuesday midnight as announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the government had given clear directions that the hospitals, banks, toll nakas and other public utilities services should accept these notes till December 31.
The police said that Sharma’s pregnant wife, Kiran, was taking treatment from Dr Kamat. Though Kiran was due in December, she delivered a premature baby on November 9.
