The condition of 21-year-old woman became critical after a surgeon allegedly put wrong clips in her liver. He threatened the family members to take her back home when her condition began to deteriorate. Family members of patient lodged a complaint with DIG Harinarayanachari Mishra, chief medical and health officer Dr HN Nayak and divisional commissioner Raghwendra Singh on Wednesday after which a three-member probe panel was constituted.

Divya Agrawal, resident of Dewas, complained of stomach ache as there was stone in her gall bladder. She was referred to Maharaja Yeshwantrao Hospital by local doctors. Her father Shambhudayal Agrawal said, “I took my daughter to MY Hospital and met Dr Arif Ansari who is assistant professor at MGM Medical College on May 25 where he told me that MY Hospital is worst hospital and patient get infection there.”

Dr Ansari suggested to bring patient to Medicare Hospital for surgery. “After going through tests prescribed by Dr Ansari, we admitted Divya in Medicare Hospital on May 30 and she was operated up on by Dr Ansari on May 31. Later, her condition deteriorated but doctors termed it as post-operative complication and side-effects of medicines,” Agrawal said. He said he took a second medical opinion from a senior doctor and found that Dr Ansari has put wrong clips in the liver.

“My daughter has undergone check-ups at various medical institutes but there is no relief. Dr Ansari is responsible for her all this. Action should be taken against him,” Agrawal told officials. Three-member probe panel constituted DIG Mishra handed over the probe to ASP Shailendra Chouhan while CMHO Dr Nayak constituted a three-member probe panel comprising Dr Ashok Tiwari, Dr Amit Malakar and Dr Jitendra.
