UP police arrest key accused doctor in Gorakhpur tragedy (Lead)

Ever since, police had been conducting raids in various locations in order to apprehend the accused.

Dr Rajiv Mishra, the former principal of Baba Raghav Das Medical College Hospital and his wife Dr Purnima Shukla were previously arrested by the Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force in Kanpur. Our correspondent reports that the arrest came a day after a Gorakhpur court issued non-bailable warrants against seven people including Dr Kafeel. All of them, namely Kafeel Khan, Manish Bhandari, Uday Pratap Sharma, Sanjay Kumar Tripathi, Satish, Sudhir Kumar Pandey and Gajanand Jaiswal, have been accused of irregularities that led to the deaths of children in Gorakhpur hospital. The death toll now stands at 1,304 this year and a city court issued non-bailable warrants against seven people.

Khan, a paediatric and nodal officer of the 100-bed AES (acute encephalitis syndrome) ward in the hospital, has been accused of dereliction of duty and not informing seniors and the administration of the paucity of oxygen, which led to numerous deaths.

The 30 deaths over two days were attributed to shortage of oxygen after a private company cut supply over a payment dispute. Khan has been charged with laxity and criminal negligence.

Police in northern India have arrested a doctor in connection with the deaths of scores of children at a government-run hospital in August. Therefore, he was blamed for not informing Yogi Adityanath, Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, about the shortage of the cylinders and the debt of the hospital.

As many as 13 children, 10 in NICU and three in general paediatric ward died in the past 24 hours, the newly-appointed principal of the college Dr PK Singh said on Saturday. His arrest comes six days after he was suspended by the state government in connection with the deaths of over 60 children in five days in the week beginning August 7, allegedly due to lack of oxygen supply.
