Anuradha Saha case: Calcutta HC
rejects appeal by Dr Kunal Saha

April 30, 2003 21:12 IST

The Calcutta High Court on Wednesday rejected an appeal by NRI doctor Kunal Saha for removal of Dr Ashok Choudhury from the West Bengal Medical Council's Disciplinary Committee.

The committeedealt with Saha's complaint that three reputed Kolkata doctors -- Dr Baidyanath Haldar, Sukumar Mukherjee and Abani Roy Choudhury -- had been negligent in treating his wife Anuradha leading to her death in 1998 when on a visit to the metropolis.

A division bench comprising Justice Ashok Ganguly and Justice Hrishikesh Mukherjee declined to interfere with the June 18, 2002 decision of the Medical Council appointing Dr Ashok Choudhury to the disciplinary committee.

Saha feared not getting a fair judgment from the committee alleging that Dr Choudhury was biased against him.

The NRI doctor had filed the appeal against an earlier high court order vide which Justice Kalyan Jyoti Sengupta had rejected Saha's plea for removal of Dr Choudhury, who is also the president of the West Bengal Medical Council.

The Medical Council has already declared that the three doctors were not to be held responsible for Anuradha's death.
