The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has registered a case of gross negligence by the Gurugram private hospital over the mysterious death of Rosy Sangma, in Gurugram.
The CBI, on the directions of the Union Home Ministry, has also registered a case of negligence against Managing Director of Alfa Health Care Dr Anuj Bisnoi and dentist Anjali Ashk in connection with the death of Rosy Sangma, a resident of Dimapur, Nagaland, on June 24 last year.
The first information report (FIR) was registered on Wednesday after a year-long probe and according to the FIR filed by the CBI, the two doctors have been booked under Section 304 (death due to negligence) of the Indian Penal Code.
Rosy Sangma, a GoAir air-hostess and a resident of Dimapur, died after doctors allegedly fed her ice cream while she was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of the hospital. Subsequently, the following day, her nephew Samuel Sangma, who suspected foul play in Rosy’s death, was found hanging in his room.
The Home Ministry had directed a CBI probe into the matter, based on a complaint from MP Agatha Sangma.
The CBI claimed that, “Enquiry revealed that Rosy Sangma had suffered pain in both hands and right leg with 8-10 episodes of loose motions and heavy menstrual bleeding, on June 23, 2021. She was brought by her two brothers and nephew Samuel Sangma to the Alfaa Health Care Hospital, Sector-10, Basai Road, Gurgaon around 6 am (June 24). Enquiry prima facie discloses that Ms Rosy Sangma died due to the negligence on the part of Dr Anuj Bisnoi and Dr Anjali Ashk.”
The FIR mentioned that Dr Anjali Ashk treated Rosy Sangma, who was bleeding, though she was a dentist, having no knowledge of gynaecology issues. In her assessment note, Ashk mentioned that Rosy should be given four units of blood and the opinion of a gynecologist be taken.
The FIR also stated that a gynaecologist was not called in for six hours and Dr Anuj Bisnoi entered the hospital at 10.26 am on June 24 as per CCTV footage, even though he was informed of admitting a serious patient in his hospital at 6 am.
Further, the FIR states, that Bisnoi sent a letter to SHO Bijwasan police station at around 12:30 pm informing him that the patient brought to his hospital in serious condition has died. Bisnoi also expressed poisoning/suspected foul play in the letter and that Rosy Sangma was admitted to ICU in serious condition but was not responding to treatment.
“Dr Anuj Bishnoi prepared a discharge card in which he mentioned suspected poisoning /suspected foul play and referring her to higher centre, but actually didn’t refer her to civil hospital or higher centre for further treatment,” CBI enquiry report added.
