Same test, different labs, varying results

Chandigarh, September 21
Going by the medical implications of the same test reports showing “sensitive” in one laboratory and “resistant” in the other, one can imagine what Mrs Chamanjit Kaur, a resident of Sector 33, is going through mentally. The reports of three reputed laboratories are showing contradictory results. Not just that. The tests show the variations in her puss cells ranging between one in a lab and 120 in the other.

A report of Dr Lal Path Labs Limited shows the count of puss cells as 120. The Chandigarh Clinical Laboratories report shows the same count as 1-2 only. The Khandelwal Diagnostics results show the count of puss cells as 50-60.

In all the cases, the sample was handed over to the labs on September 5 and the reports received two days later.

Mrs Chamanjit is suffering from urinary tract infection (UTI), more severely, for the past about three months. She stayed at the PGIMER for more than 15 days.

The report of a centre shows the patient as sensitive to Cefotaxime while the report of another lab shows the patient is resistant to it. The same labs have also given contrary reports on a patient’s reaction to Piperacillin. There is also a contradiction with regard to a patient’s reaction to Ciproflox in different labs.

Mr Amrit Pal Singh, husband of Mrs Chamanjit Kaur said, “I am baffled. The PGI doctor says that he cannot act on any one of the reports. One lab questioned us as to why we went in for three tests. Thank God, I did. I am talking about the issue just to highlight an extremely sensitive issue among the general public and ask the labs to adopt greater care. I am not biased against anyone.’’

The local Chapter of the Indian Medical Association has written to all concerned laboratories seeking a reply. The association has also replied back to a representation by Mr Amrit Pal Singh, saying, “It seems she is a diabetic suffering from polymicrobial infection in urine”.

Ms Indrani Khandelwal from Khandelwal Diagnostics said, “It is surprising to learn that one report shows the count as one and another report has the count as 120. I have received communication from the IMA and am seeking an appointment with Mr Amrit Pal Singh to clear the issue. I have certain doubts regarding the sample.”

Dr Khandelwal said, “The matter was serious and definitely needed a check mechanism. The authorities also need to break the nexus of rickshaw puller and lab assistants in big hospitals who are tied up with specific labs. They are paid commission. I agree to the fact that such contradictory reports can harass the patients. We all need to introspect and attempt an improvement”.

Dr J. S. Tanaych from Dr Lal Path Labs said, “It is difficult to comment anything about other labs. I can only say we follow extreme caution and maintain high standards in all our tests”.

No official from the Chandigarh Clinical Laboratories got back to reply despite assurance by two doctors to reply by evening, to the correspondent.

Dera Bassi, September 21
Yet another major land fraud has been detected in Chandigarh’s periphery where the property prices have skyrocketed in the wake of the property boom. In this case, the land belonging to an NRI has allegedly been sold by a Chandigarh resident to the New Delhi-based ATS Infrastructure Limited Housing Company by faking his general power of attorney (GPA).

Acting on a communication from the Dera Bassi Sub-Registrar, the SDM, Mr Narinder Sangha, today wrote to the police to investigate the matter and take appropriate legal action against the alleged accused Inderpal Singh, a resident of Kaimbala in Chandigarh.

In his communication, the Sub-Registrar informed the SDM that Mr Rajbir Singh, counsel for the NRI, claimed that Inderpal Singh produced an impersonator, who posed as the NRI, Mr Mohinder Singh, and got the GPA registered in Chandigarh on September 13.

Sources said on the basis of the fake GPA, Inderpal Singh allegedly entered into an agreement with the ATS Infrastructure through its General Manager, Col Gurbinder Singh(Retd), for the said land measuring 16 bighas and 19 biswas for Rs 2.96 crore in Sadhe Majra village, near here.

However, when Mr Mohinder Singh came to know about the land deal, he approached his counsel and also reportedly brought the matter to the notice of the local Naib Tehsildar.

Meanwhile, the police sources said a registered would be registered and the matter handed over to the Economic Offences Wing for a thorough probe into the matter.

In the wake of sudden spurt in the property prices,land frauds and disputes have become a routine affair in the sub-division. It may be recalled that the Dera Bassi sub-division has become a favourite haunt of the major real estate players, including the ATS, which had reportedly been paying exorbitant prices for buying of land for the housing projects.

To look at the services offered by the British Council because we are different from other libraries in the sense that what we are offering is the best from the UK in terms of educational opportunities, research material, books and even events which we hope to introduce in greater measure after I have a better idea of how things work here.

Reverted cops planning to move court
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, September 21
After the Chandigarh Police passed orders reverting 130 policemen promoted on ad-hoc basis, at least some of them are considering the feasibility of moving court against the orders.

The sources in the police headquarters assert that a number of reverted cops continued to hold consultation with the legal experts regarding the grounds of assailing the orders.

The orders of reversion were passed by DIG Vivek Gogia in this connection on Tuesday.

Those who have been reverted include two sub-inspectors, 12 assistant sub-inspectors and 115 head constables.

It is pertinent to mention here that about two years ago the UT police had ignored orders issued by CAT after a Chandigarh Police constable appeared before CAT, when he was denied promotion by the department.

The matter has been kept in cold storage for a long time even after the Punjab and Haryana High court has passed direction in this regard. As a result, in the meantime, some of the promoted policemen retired from the police department. The process of reversion has been initiated following a communication of dated September 12 from the office of the home secretary.

Sources in the police said about two years ago Chandigarh Police Constable Jaswinder Singh appeared before CAT seeking promotion in sports quota on ad-hoc basis. The CAT passed orders in his favour, however, the department moved high court against the orders. The department had taken the plea that that the Indian police Act has no provision of ad-hoc promotion. At this, while challenging the plea the defence presented the list of 130 cops promoted by the department on ad-hoc basis. The high court then passed its verdict in favour of the department and also directed the department to review the ad-hoc promotion carried out by it earlier.

The Chandigarh Police constituted a team a three-member team including SSP (Operation) L.S. Sandhu, SSP Gaurav Yadav and SP (Traffic) Amitabh Dhillon. The in-charge of the committee SSP Sandhu submitted his report to the UT IGP, Mr Satish Chandra, recommending reversion of the cops to local ranks and also be paid according to their rank.

The report also recommended that they would remain in lower ranks in the department records. The file kept on gathering dust in the office of the IGP and no action had been taken on the report in this connection. 



Three festivals planned to promote tourism, culture
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, September 21
At least three major festivals have been planned by the Chandigarh Administration as part of the festival bonanza later this year, according to a press note.
It will organise the Chandigarh Heritage Festival (October 7), the Chandigarh Carnival (November 25 and 26) and the Chandigarh New Year Festival (December 26 to January 2) to promote tourism and culture.

This decision was taken during a meeting at the UT Secretariat under the chairmanship of Home Secretary Krishna Mohan here yesterday.

Tourism Director Vivek Atray said all details of the festivals had been chalked out.

The Administration would organise a heritage walk from the Open Hand Monument to the Bougainvillaea Garden, seminars and workshops at schools and colleges and a function at the Government Museum and Art Gallery as part of the Chandigarh Heritage Festival.

Important buildings of the Capital Complex and others like the Kiran Cinema, Sector 22, would be lit up by the Engineering Department on the evening of October 7.

Setback to breeding programme

Chandigarh, September 21
The death of two white tigers in Mahendera Chaudhary Zoological Park, Chhatbir, is a matter of concern for biologists. White tigers are rare animals. Nowadays they are seen only in captivity. So they are considered prized possessions in zoos.

The Nandankanan Zoological Park in Orissa is home to nearly 25 white tigers, while the Delhi zoo has six. The Chhatbir zoo had only one pair. According to estimates, there are less than 100 white tigers left in India.

But is the white tiger different from the orange one? The answer is no. These tigers are simple white-coloured Bengal tigers with random black/brown stripes, blue eyes and pink nose. They are not a separate subspecies. But they grow faster and heavier than their orange counterparts.

A white tiger is born when both tigers that mate, carry the gene for white colouring. However, in the wild this occurs in one out of approximately 10,000 births. Hence white tigers are very- very rare in wild.

The white colouration is a result of gene mutation; a permanent change in the gene controlling the coat colouration. This changed gene can be passed on from one generation to another. Moreover, this rare colour mutation is only found in the Bengal tiger subspecies.

The white tiger is sometimes mistakenly considered to be an albino species of tiger. However, it is not true. The albino tiger does not have any stripes. Since white tigers are not actually pure white, they are sometimes called chinchilla or ice tiger also.

Today, the population of the white tiger in India is believed to be the progeny of a male tiger, Mohan that was captured in 1951. Mohan died in 1969.

Even the white tiger collection in the USA traces its ancestry to Mohan.

The then maharaja of Rewa, Gulab Singh, first captured a white tiger in 1915, which was later used for breeding in captivity.

However, zoologists say the flawed reproduction programmes in some of the zoos for the past many decades has weakened the bloodline and devastated gene pool of white tigers since inbreeding was encouraged to get white tiger cubs.

Because of the excessive inbreeding the entire stock has lost its basic characteristics and immunity to disease.

But in the Chhatbir zoo, the white tiger pair had different lineage as the male was brought from Aurangabad zoo last year and the female was born in the zoo in 2003. Their death is a major setback to the white tiger’s conservation programme.



Death of White tigers still a mystery
Samples sent to Bareilly, Ludhiana
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, September 21
The death of two white tigers at Chhat Bir Zoo on Wednesday remained shrouded in mystery with the post-mortem report samples being sent to Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal Sciences University, Ludhiana, and the IVRI, Izatnagar (Bareilly), for a thorough examination.

Giving this information to The Tribune the zoo Field Director, Mr Dharminder Sharma, said the samples had been collected for histopathology. “The diagnosis of the disease will be co-related with the histopathology findings,” Mr Sharma added.

With the officials not revealing anything about the post-mortem findings, the ball now appears to be in the court of the Ludhiana and Bareilly institutes.

Wildlife circles continue to be in a state of shock. The two tigers were in the prime of their youth and hale and hearty. They died within a span of seven hours despite a team of veterinarians remaining on full alert after the death of a Royal Bengal Tigress on Monday.
