Medical Council of India suspends licence of city doctor for medical negligence


The Medical Council (MCI) of India has debarred a city doctor from practicing for three years after its ethics committee found him guilty of medical negligence and printing incorrect information about his qualification on the prescription paper. The order came on petition filed by banker Sudhir Srivastava who held that his wife Nidhi died due to wrong diagnosis and treatment by Dr Vipul Shah.

A copy of the order, that was received by the applicant on Wednesday, debarred Dr Shah from practice for two and three years under separate charges. Both the suspension will run simultaneously. The MCI has directed state medical faculty to erase the name of Dr Vipul Shah from its record. On being contacted, Dr Vipul Shah said that he was not aware of any such order.
