Psychiatrist Arrested for Death of Patient


From The Times of India: A psychiatrist from the Uma Nalini Mary Clinic and Research Institute was recently arrested on charges of homicide of a middle-aged patient. A preliminary investigation has revealed that patients are ill-treated and tortured at the Uma Nalini Mary Clinic and Research Institute.

“The doctor, RK Brahma, the director of the nursing home, had issued his death certificate claiming the engineer had died of ‘acute myocardial infection’ on May 20. However, his relatives doubted the doctor’s claims and lodged a complaint at Bidhannagar south police station. The body was sent for post-mortem examination and after the reports reached the cops that stated the patient died of ‘haematoma’ and ‘blunt injuries’ on his head, a team of officers arrested Brahma from his CK block home on Tuesday morning.”

  1. And not bullshit cause of death reports like ” I’m going to say he died of natural causes and I’m satisfied he was well looked after.””
    This coroner should lose his license to practice , but no one mentions lying on a report is ? criminal because he is being “kind” to the family. “Only lacking compassion (kindness) is still a sin.” wrote Thomas Szasz in his book Cruel Compassion.
