Electrocution death: Cleanchit to PGI doctor
Chandigarh: After a week of a 55-year-old
patient dying of electrocution, the PGIMER inquiry committee
on Tuesday gave a cleanchit to a doctor who was trying to
resuscitate the patient, officials said.
Ghinder Singh, a resident of Doraha in Ludhiana
district, was burnt alive on a stretcher when doctors were
trying to revive him by giving shocks on June 27.
Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and
Research (PGIMER) inquiry committee, which was set up a day
after Singh was killed, submitted its report to the Director
terming it as "rarest of rare and most unfortunate", officials
The four-member committee also recommended the institute
to develop a protocol for taking permission of patients or
relatives before giving them electric shocks as after the
incident the patient`s family accused doctors of being
careless, they said.
The victim was admitted to PGIMER a month ago and had
been operated for a liver disorder.
