Harshina

Kozhikode: There has been no progress in the internal investigation ordered by Health Minister Veena George into the alleged lapses on the part of doctors of Kozhikode medical college who left scissors inside the woman's stomach during caesarean in 2017.

The complainant, Harshina, alleged that even after two months since evidence collection, a report has not been filed in the matter.

She is undergoing treatment at the Kozhikode medical college after developing more health issues. Harshina has informed the hospital authorities that she would not leave the premises until appropriate action is taken against the accused.

She claimed that she tried contacting the minister several times over phone to know the progress but in vain.

According to Harshina, she underwent a caesarean at the medical college on November 30, 2017 following which she suffered recurring stomach pain.

“Finally when I found the pain unbearable, I again visited a hospital and when a CT scan was conducted, I was told that a metal object was in my stomach. Later I was told it was a scissor," she had said. Harshina had filed a complaint with the health minister and the chief minister.

The health minister had appointed a 3-member team, headed by medical education directorate special officer Dr Abdul Rasheed, to investigate the matter.
