The health department has issued a show cause notice to a doctor for cancellation of his licence and started inquiry of his hospital after he was arrested for allegedly sheltering the accused in the murder of local BJP leader Om Vir Singh here.
A notice was issued against Dr Ramkumar last evening and investigations have begun about his hospital. The health department has asked the doctor to produce papers of his hospital, Dr Puran Singh, Additional Chief Medical Officer, Meerut told reporters here. The trio of doctors--Ramkumar, Adip Kotpal, owner of the private hospital and its manager Kirshan Kumar were arrested on Thursday in the district's Mirapur town, Circle Officer Mahesh Mishra had said.
The three doctors were taken into custody for sheltering accused Monu after admitting him at their private hospital for treatment without informing police.
Police said that Monu, who has been accused of shooting Singh dead in an attack on June 10, was himself shot in the process and went to the said hospital for treatment. The 47-year-old Singh, also known as 'Fauji', was a retired army man and the vice-president of the BJP unit in Mirapur town.
According to police, he was out for a morning walk on June 10 when two assailants fired multiple shots at him.
Singh, who had a licensed revolver on him, fired back at the attackers, injuring one of them. But the attackers managed to snatch the gun from him before fleeing.
