GORAKHPUR: Dr Kafeel on Thursday met ADG law and or­der Mo­hit Ag­gar­wal in Luc­know and sought ac­tion against cops who made him run from one hos­pi­tal to an­other for medico le­gal for­mal­i­ties which in turn had de­layed the surgery of his brother Kashif Jameel, who was shot at by uniden­ti­fied mis­cre­ants in Gorakhpur on June 10.

Dr Kafeel said the surgery which had to be done im­me­di­ately to save his brother’s life was de­layed by four hours in medico le­gal for­mal­i­ties, first at dis­trict hos­pi­tal and then 15 km away at BRD med­i­cal col­lege even as the bul­let re­mained stuck in Kashif’s neck.

“We had come here to meet DGP but we could only meet ADG Mo­hit Ag­gar­wal. We had sought ac­tion against cir­cle of­fi­cer, Go­rakhnath Praveen Singh and SP crime Vi­nay Singh, who, first con­ducted medico le­gal for­mal­i­ties at dis­trict hos­pi­tal and then took us 15 km away to con­duct sec­ond medico le­gal at BRD med­i­cal col­lege, where doc­tor re­fused to do so say­ing medico le­gal had al­ready been done at dis­trict hos­pi­tal and it was not re­quired now,” said he said.

“My brother was yelling in pain but these cops were so in­sen­si­tive due to which we lost four cru­cial hours. He was shot at around 10.30 but the bul­let was re­moved from his neck only around 3 in the morn­ing. My brother could have died, the doc­tor added.

He said that four days have passed since the in­ci­dent but no ac­cused have been nabbed so far.

SSP Sha­l­abh Mathur, how­ever, re­fused the charges of po­lice ap­a­thy say­ing that they were re­ferred to the dis­trict hos­pi­tal for medico le­gal for­mal­i­ties and then to BRD med­i­cal col­lege.

“We have the re­fer­ral let­ter with us. He was then re­ferred to KGMU by BRD doc­tors but they chose to get Kashif op­er­ated upon in Star hos­pi­tal. Sec­ondly, we are on the verge of work­ing out the case.” SSP said
