In a pre­vi­ous in­quiry, by a se­nior IAS of­fi­cer, the re­sults of which were sub­mit­ted to the med­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion depart­ment in April 2019, Kafeel had been ab­solved of two of the four charges lev­elled against him by the gov­ern­ment. A fi­nal de­ci­sion on the charges of which Kafeel was ab­solved is still to be taken by the gov­ern­ment, au­thor­i­ties said.

Of the four cases, Kafeel was found guilty of in­dulging in pri­vate prac­tice and be­ing at­tached to a pri­vate nurs­ing home in Go­rakh­pur till April 2017.

On Thurs­day, the prin­ci­pal sec­re­tary in the med­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion depart­ment, Ra­jneesh Dube, said the fresh in­quiry would in­ves­ti­gate a to­tal of seven charges against Kafeel. Dube will be the in­quiry of­fi­cer. “Dr Kafeel Khan has not been ex­on­er­ated in the case. He has been spread­ing mis­in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion,” Dube claimed.
