Staff Reporter :
A murder case was filed against for surgeons including Professor Dr Habibur Rahman (Dulal) of the Department of Urology of the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) on Friday two years after the death of a female patient following the removal of her two kidneys, instead of one.
Other accused are Assistant Professor Dr Faruque Hossain, Dr Mostafa Kamal and Dr Al Mamun.
Film director Rafique Sikder, son of the victim filed the case. Police said they are trying to arrest the accused.
According to the case statement, Rafique Sikder admitted her mother Rowshan Ara to the Department of Urology of the BSMMU on July 1, 2018 with infection in a kidney of her.
After the treatment, she was released from the hospital. During the follow-up treatment, Rafique Sikder was told that it became necessary to remove his mother's left kidney through surgical procedures. Later, he admitted his mother to the hospital and the left kidney was removed through operation on September 5.
As Rowshan Ara's condition deteriorated, his son took her to a private hospital. After examination, the son learned that the right kidney of her mother had been vanished.
Though the accused urologist claimed during the operation that his mother's right kidney was not functioning, he removed it silently and did not inform the attendant of the patient about it.
Rafique Sikder said that doctor Habibur Rahman confessed the crime and entered into a written agreement with them that he would do the kidney transplant of the victim at his own expense. But he has wasted time. On the other hand, he left his mother in a coma in the life support of ICU of BSMMU Hospital. His mother died there on the night of October 31.
Rafique Sikder further said that there was a delay in getting the autopsy report.
The doctors were probably influencing it in some way. This has made dealy in filing the case.
According to Rafique’s family, some doctors at BSMMU's urology department cut off Rowshan Ara's two kidneys and sold them. At the hospital, a 12-year-old child died, to whom they gave a completely healthy kidney, but after the transplant, the doctors said that the kidney was also damaged. When Rowshan Ara was admitted, Dr Mamun's mother was admitted there. He also had two kidneys damaged. After treatment she is now completely healed. They now want a proper investigation into this incident.
Meanwhile, the police say that the murder case has been taken after analyzing the allegations of the plaintiff and the autopsy report. Now according to the law, the case will be investigated and necessary action will be taken.
