Notice served to officer probing infant deaths

Former Medical Superintendent of G B Pant Hospital, Javid Chowdhary has served a legal notice on the inquiry officer probing the high infant mortality rate here, accusing him of destroying important evidence.

Director of Sher-e-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences, Soura Showkat Ahmad Zargar was served the legal notice by Chowdhary through his counsel on Sunday. Accusing Zargar of exceeding his limits, the notice alleged that the inquiry officer broke open Chowdhary’s locker in the hospital without informing him and took away “important papers” which he had kept for his defence.

Zargar has been appointed as inquiry officer to ascertain the cause of high rate of deaths in the G B Pant hospital on May 17, on the day Chowdhary was relieved of his charge as Medical superintendent of the hospital
