Amritsar, November 26
A three-member committee constituted by the Health Department on Thursday recorded the statements of the gynaecologists at the Civil Hospital and other employees in the photo op incident inside the operation theatre.
The team visited the hospital and recorded the statements of the gynecologists to ascertain the facts about a video in which Civil Surgeon Navdeep Singh and others were seen performing a C-section surgery on a pregnant woman on November 17.
The team later also recorded the statement of district mass media officer at the civil surgeon’s office who had released the video along with a press release to highlight the efforts of Dr Navdeep for performing his clinical duties.
However, the video landed Dr Navdeep in a soup as the Punjab State Commission for Women issued a show-cause notice to him and others alleging it as a case of violation of privacy of a woman patient. Dr Navdeep has since been transferred out.
Sources in the department stated that the investigation team would submit the inquiry reported to the Director, Health Department, after which an action could be taken against the employees involved in the incident. — TNS
