Sep 21: Dr. Jaswinder Pal Kaur Shergill, principal of Guru Nanak Medical College of Amritsar has been suspended for the alleged removal of the kidney from a child’s body during the operation.

Daughter of a peon was operated for some complications in the institution hospital. Her parents discovered this month only that she does not have one of her kidney. Along with the senior doctor a duty officer doctor H S Grewal also has been suspended after the enquiry by the Amritsar deputy commissioner who found them guilty.

Though the doctors gave medical reasons behind the removal of the kidney of the child as the kidney was non functional and sent for further tests in pathology lab.

A three member team has been constituted to conduct an inquiry of the alleged case. Team will be headed by Dr. U S Dhaliwal, principal Sri Guru Ram Das Medical College and Hospital of Amritsar.

Other members of the inquiry team would be Dr. Thind, forensic medicine at Guru Gobind Singh Medical College, Faridkot and Dr. Jai Kishan Saini Head of the TB department of medical college of Patiala.

Meanwhile Dr. Jagdish Gargi, director of the P G medical institute for Research, Jalandhar would take the additional charge of the principal of the Amritsar Medical college.

Though IMA has condemned the suspension of the senior doctor calling it ‘unwarranted’ and demanded the immediate revoke of the order failing which intensified agitation will take place.

IMA says that kidney was having cancer and removed only after the consent of the family.
