first_imgDoctor Kafeel Khan who is languishing in jail since last September in connection with the deaths of infants in a Gorakhpur hospital was on Wednesday granted bail by the Allahabad High Court.A single Bench of Justice Yashwant Verma granted him bail accepting counsel’s argument that there was not sufficient evidence against him.Narzul Islam Jafri, Mr. Khan’s main counsel, told The Hindu that the court agreed with his argument that the State government did not have “sufficient legal evidence to connect” the doctor to the charges filed against him.Mr. Khan faces charges under attempt to commit culpable homicide, criminal breach of trust and criminal conspiracy, which fall under Sections 308, 409 and 120 B of the Indian Penal Code, respectively. The additional charges of corruption and private practice have already been dropped during investigation for lack of evidence.Also Read Gorakhpur doctor’s family concerned about his health in jail “Since the deaths were due to natural cause, there is no offence against Dr. Kafeel,” Mr. Jafri said.Mr. Khan was initially hailed as a hero for using his resources to supply oxygen to Baba Raghav Das Medical College during the crisis hour on the night of August 10 last year, when infants died there as the oxygen supply allegedly stopped.He was then a nodal officer of the National Health Mission and an assistant lecturer in the paediatrics department of the hospital. However, on the recommendations of a four-member committee led by the State Chief Secretary, Mr. Khan was among the several doctors of the hospital indicted for the incident.Sadaful Islam Jafri, also Mr. Khan’s counsel, said,“The court was of the impression, that if he is involved in private practice, then you can suspend him, but you cannot keep him in jail.”He said that in its counter-affidavit filed in the High Court, the government had admitted that the infant deaths were due to natural causes and not due to any lack of oxygen supply. Mr. Khan, while being escorted out of the district hospital, where he was taken for a medical check-up recently, said he was “being framed.”last_img read more

first_imgA Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between the Portuguese Environment Ministry and the Public Works Department of Goa will help the State manage its water resources better, Portugal Environment Minister João Pedro de Matos Fernandes said on Saturday. Mr. Fernandes, who is on a Goa visit, said that the Prime Ministers of both India and Portugal had identified water and waste management as priority areas for bilateral cooperation and that the MoU was in sync with their vision. Goa’s PWD Minister Sudin Dhavalikar described the signing of the two-year long arrangement as a “significant move to work with Portugal to develop common initiatives for water supply and waste water management.” “I think that the MoU will be important for both countries. Twenty years ago Portugal, had had exactly the problems that Goa is facing today. We invested about 10 billion euros over the past 20 to 25 years, the results of which we can see now,” Mr. Fernandes said. The MoU proposes technical partnership in the areas of water supply operation and energy efficiency, resource valorisation, waste water and sewerage planning, management and technological solutions, asset management procedure and standards, energy management operational workflows, operational data and information management. As part of the MoU, the assessment of two of the biggest water treatment and supply plants at Selaulim and Opa in Goa would be undertaken, Mr. Dhavalikar also said. Means of removal of manganese from the water processing facilities, which results in stoppages every now and then, will also be considered. “The MoU is nothing but the consolidation of a true partnership and we should not miss out on this opportunity for sustainable development,” he said.last_img read more

First, he swears during the match fixing drama that he will have nothing to do with cricket.Then he appears on assorted golf courses, leaving no one in doubt as to what his sport of choice is. He aims, he claims, to represent India in golf too, and become a double international.FLIP FLOP: Kapil Dev on cricketJust when it was safe to start reading the sports pages again, Dev lashes out at the “attitude” and “commitment” of players like Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar, “I get the impression that they are not part of a team unit.” Strange because that should mean he did an awful job as India coach himself from 1999-2000.Surely fostering fellow-feeling should have been a piece of cake for the all-time great team man and World Cup winning captain. Or does all this have to do more with the fact that the current Indian team, having had its fill of Dev, is not afraid to say so?First the seniors put in a request to the BCCI for a professional coach from overseas. Now, the birdies say, they have asked BCCI chief Jagmohan Dalmiya to diplomatically undo his appointment of Dev as the team’s fast bowling coach for the 2003 World Cup.Hell hath no fury than a superstar scorned perhaps?last_img read more
