The High Court has directed the officer-in-charge (OC) of Baufal police station in Patuakhali to arrest a fraud doctor who left gauze inside a woman's abdomen during her cesarean surgery.
Justice Salma Masud Chowdhury and Justice AKM Jahirul Haque also asked the OC on Thursday to produce Razan Das before the bench within December 10.
The directives were issued following the failure of Patuakhali police station OC Moniruzzaman to arrest Razan and produce him before the bench in the morning.
The court also asked the Patuakhali police to seek help of Rapid Action Battalion, if necessary.
On July 23, the same bench summoned three people, including Patuakhali civil surgeon and gynecology department head of Barisal Medical College, in this connection.
Supreme Court lawyer Md Shahid Ullah drew the court’s attention to a newspaper report in this regard on July 22.
On November 6, the Patuakhali civil surgeon submitted a probe report to the court stating that Razan had been using fake certificate and license of being a doctor. He conducted a cesarean surgery on a pregnant woman in Niramoy Private Clinic in Patuakhali and left gauze inside her abdomen in May.
Victim Maksuda Begum, 25, gave birth to a baby girl but her physical condition started to deteriorate after two months.
On July 12, the doctors of Sher-e-Bangla Medical College and Hospital detected the gauze inside her abdomen and removed it.
