The Sterling Hospital in the city has moved the Gujarat High Court for quashing the complaint lodged by senior IPS officer Satish Verma, accusing four doctors of the hospital of criminal negligence during a surgery operated on him. Verma, known for his investigation in Ishrat Jahan fake encounter case, had lodged the complaint before Chief Judicial Magistrate, Ahmedabad rural court, stating that after a fall in the bathroom he was admitted to the hospital. He was told that he suffered a femur bone fracture and underwent a hip surgery. Verma has alleged that due to the surgery he developed a limp since his left leg became shorter by two inches. Sterling hospital’s lawyer Jal Unwala said an appeal has been filed for quashing of the case, adding that there is no proof that the doctors were involved in any criminal negligence. He said the court will hear the case next week.
