Terming ‘goof up’ of first medical report of Bhopal gangrape case as serious offence, now the State Women’s Commission has recommended cancelling registration of lady doctors involved in preparing the report.

During the hearing on Tuesday the Women’s Commission calling it as serious crime said that such things cannot be confined to human error case and strict action needs to be taken against the medical authorities. During the hearing, lady doctors who made the medical report were also present.

The medical report of the 19-year-old student who was gangraped on October 31 evening in Bhopal stated that the two main accused had sexual intercourse with her consent. The first medical test of Bhopal gangrape victim has been conducted at Lady Sultania Hospital. The supplementary report was later made in which gangrape was mentioned. The hand-written report also said that the four accused robbed the girl’s gold earrings, cellphone and her wrist watch. The authorities claim that there were mistakes in the first report which were corrected on November 4.

The junior doctor reportedly said it was a ‘human error’ and sent the supplementary report, mentioning gangrape. The two inexperienced junior doctors were given the task of preparing medical report in the sensitive gangrape case of a 19-year-old which they had badly botched up, leading to widespread criticism.
