In 2017, Paediatrician Dr Kafeel Khan was accused of being responsible for the death of several children on the intervening night of August 10 and 11, 2017. These tragic deaths were reportedly caused because the state-run BRD Medical College Hospital ran out of oxygen on the fateful night. The young victims were being treated in the encephalitis ward, and died within a span of 48 hours. 

Dr Kafeel Khan has now announced that he has been sacked by the Uttar Pradesh state government, and that he will wait for the official orders and then challenge it in court.  According to Dr Khan this action of the government of UP comes even after he got a “clean chit from a court”.



The Allahabad High Court had even stayed the Uttar Pradesh government’s decision of suspending Dr. Kafeel Khan, for the second time in 2019, for allegedly misbehaving with the staff at Bahraich District Hospital. Dr Khan had approached the Allahabad High Court challenging his suspension order on the ground that sufficient time had lapsed and the inquiry had not been concluded against him even after more than two years. He had also submitted that since he was already a suspended employee, there is no purpose of passing a second suspension order. Now, he says the government has sacked him. 

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, General Secretary, Indian National Congress has said this suspension is a part of a “hate agenda” and that her party will support Dr. Khan in his fight for justice.
