Health Desk—Nov 18, 2017: Four persons including two doctors of SMK Hospital at Chandraganj under Laxmipur upazila of Noakhali were detained by police on Friday over death of a patient due to alleged wrong treatment.

The doctors are gynaecologist Kazi Fayeza Akhtar and Golam Mainuddin. The other two are Alamgir and Rahim Mia. Patient's brother Ismail Hossain said his sister, Fatema Begum, 45, was undergoing surgery yesterday to remove a tumour in her uterus by gynaecologist Fayeza at SMK Hospital. At one stage, the doctor came out of the operation room and asked them to take her to Comilla urgently.

His sister died before they could reach a hospital in Comilla, he said, alleging that wrong treatment by the doctors at the Chandraganj hospital is the reason behind her death. They had admitted Fatema to the hospital in the afternoon the day before, he also said.

OC Moktar Hossain of Chandraganj Police Station said they took the four into their custody to avoid any untoward situation.

They would take necessary steps upon receiving formal complaints from the family, the OC added.
