KOCHI: The ongoing investigation into the death of an MBBS student at the Government Medical College here two months ago, allegedly due to medical negligence, has been delayed further due to the apathetic attitude of the medical board. Though the police had referred the case to the medical board earlier this month, the expert committee has not met so far to chalk out plans to take forward the inquiry.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and Health Minister K K Shyalaja promised that steps would be taken for grant of compensation to the victim’s family.
Meanwhile, DMO M K Kuttappan told ‘Express’ that the first meeting of the expert committee would be held on September 27. “The date was fixed after confirming availability of the forensic expert. The future course of action will be decided at the meeting,” he said.
