Amritsar, November 22

After the Punjab State Commission for Women issued a show-cause notice to Civil Surgeon Dr Navdeep Singh and other employees for the photo opportunity at the Jallianwala Bagh Martyrs Memorial Civil Hospital operation theatre on November 17, blame game has begun with Dr Navdeep issuing a notice to a few junior employees.

Ankur Gupta of the Progressive Youth Forum, a local organisation, has asked the Health Minister to take action against the Civil Surgeon.

In the notice issued to junior employees, the Civil Surgeon has held them responsible for shooting the video and issuing a press release to highlight their efforts at performing clinical duties without his permission and knowledge.

Sources within the department said the said junior employees had acted upon the instructions of the Civil Surgeon. The Civil Surgeon had performed four C-section surgeries on November 17. To highlight this, the department released a statement along with the pictures and the video. The video recording had Civil Surgeon and others performing a surgery on a woman inside the operation theatre. Later, the Women Commission issued a notice to the Civil Surgeon and others for violating the privacy of a female patient. As the Civil Surgeon received a rap from higher-ups, he, in turn issued a notice to junior employees, said sources within the department said.
