New Delhi: A doctor working at the MCD-run Bara Hindu Rao Hospital here has been suspended pending an inquiry into allegations that he brought a medic from outside to conduct a surgery without permission of the authorities.

During the surgery on a bladder cancer patient at the hospital, one of the kidneys was also removed. However, MCD Public Health Committee Chairman V K Monga said there is no irregularities involved in that and the removal was done after informing the relatives of the patient beforehand.

"A doctor at Hindu Rao, Dr Pathak, has been suspended and an inquiry committee has been formed after allegations that he brought a doctor from outside to conduct an operation at the hospital. As per rules, he should have taken prior permission of the authorities concerned before doing so," Monga said.

Asked about whether it was related to organ trade, he maintained that the kidney of the cancer patient was affected and had to be removed. "It was done after informing the relatives of the patient," he said.
