Two eminent doctors attached with the AMRI Hospital in different capacities were arrested on Friday in connection with the country's worst-ever hospital fire that claimed 93 lives on December 9 last.

Both the doctors -- Mani Chhetri and Pranab Dasgupta -- who were earlier questioned by police, were arrested from their residences in Kolkata on Friday morning, Joint Commissioner of Police Damayanti Sen said.

Chhetri and Dasgupta were also board members of the hospital.

With them, 13 persons have so far been arrested in connection with the hospital fire in which 90 patients and three nurses died.

Three board members are absconding.
