HYDERABAD: Speculations are rife among doctors at Niloufer Hospital on who would face the brunt of state government following the shunting out of superintendent of the hospital Dr C Suresh Kumar and RMO Usha Rani. The duo was attached to their respective parent departments on Friday.

At least one more person from the hospital is likely to be named in the inquiry report which is to be tabled before the government by district collector Rahul Bojja.

Sources in the hospital said there are four to five people working at the hospital, who are known for creating trouble for administration and health services provided there.

From Jan 28 to Feb 4, five women who underwent cesarean surgeries at the hospital died. One more women was admitted to Osmania General Hospital. An inquiry team, headed by the collector Rahul Bojja, was ordered to find out the reasons for deaths.

When the inquiry was underway, state government issued orders stating there was prima-facie negligence on part of Dr Suresh Kumar and Usha Rani.

The collector’s report is due on Tuesday.
