Dr. Kafeel Khan and brother remanded till October 6


Lucknow: Paediatrician of BRD Medical College Hospital Dr. Kafeel Khan and his brother Adeel Khan are remanded till October 6th by Gorakhpur magistrate court.

Bahraich police on Sunday arrested him and his brother for allegedly opening a bank account in a nationalised bank usin fake documents.

Police said the accused had made transaction of Rs. 2 crore through the account opened in 2009.

According to Additional Superintendent of Police, City (Gorakhpur) Vinay Kumar Singh, in July this year, a local resident Mudassar Alam filed an FIR at Cantonment police station alleging that Adeel and his associate, Mohammed Faizan opened a bank account in Faizan's name using his photograph.

On Saturday, the police arrested Dr. Kafeel Khan and two others alleging that they questioned the families of the patients in the paediatric department without obtaining permission from the hospital authorities, which created problems in the ward. Police booked Kafeel and others. They were later granted bail.

Dr Khan is one of the nine accused in a case involving the deaths of several children due to alleged disruption in the supply of oxygen at the Baba Raghav Das Medical College in August 2017.

In the wake of the tragedy, Kafeel Khan was praised after media reports said that he had saved more than 100 children by collecting oxygen cylinders from other nursing homes and paying for them out of his own pocket when the supply was disrupted. He was in charge of the acute encephalitis syndrome ward.

After the state government said the children died of encephalitis, the police arrested Khan on charges of attempt to murder and corruption. Khan was in prison for eight months and finally got bail days after his family released a 10-page letter he wrote from jail, in which he claimed he was being made a scapegoat in the case.
