Under the scanner over a kidney racket busted by Delhi Police, Indraprastha Apollo Hospital Tuesday constituted a three-member inquiry committee to look into the existing system of granting approval for organ transplants in the hospital.
The hospital has invited former Chief Justice of Punjab and Haryana High Court and eminent jurist Justice Mukul Mudgal to head the committee. The other two members include forensic expert N C Sood and an eminent medical professional. “The committee will study the existing system of authorisation and give its recommendations to ensure that the mechanisms are strengthened. In the interest of patient safety, it will also suggest safeguards to ensure that such an incident does not happen again,” said a statement by the hospital.
