2 min read

THE MULUND police on Wednesday arrested two trustees of the Jeevan Jyoti trust in connection with the case where unqualified and bogus doctors were allegedly used by the Mulund-based MT Agarwal Hospital, run by the trust.

The trustees Deep Jain and Birendra Yadav were arrested after his anticipatory bail was rejected by the court. With this, five people have been arrested in the case.

Senior inspector K Kothimbire of Mulund police station said that Yadav was produced before a local court and remanded to police custody till August 18. The officer said that Yadav was arrested from Madhya Pradesh.

In May, police had registered an FIR based on a magistrate court for allegedly recruiting unqualified and bogus doctors to the intensive care unit of civic-run MT Agrawal Hospital. The doctors are accused of endangering the lives of patients.

The case was based on the complaint filed by Goldy Sharma who lost his brother Rajkumar Sharma in a road accident in 2018. While the brother was declared dead on arrival, Goldy said that he was told by some hospital staff that his brother was alive when he was wheeled into the hospital which made him suspicious about the credibility of the doctors.

Goldy then sought information regarding the qualifications of the doctors on duty in the ICU, and the number of deaths at the ICU between February 17, 2018, and November 22, 2018. After the police did not register an FIR in the matter, Sharma approached the magistrate court, which directed the police to register an FIR.

Incidentally, an inspector and constable from the Mulund police station were arrested after they were trapped by the Anti Corruption Bureau while allegedly accepting a bribe of Rs 2 lakh for not arresting an accused in the case.
