Dr Ashraf Badr has challenged the probe findings against him and said it was all a conspiracy by private nursing homes whose business was hit because of him

A doctor in a government hospital in Jharkhand’s Ghatsila has been sacked after a probe found him guilty of allegedly prescribing condoms to a 55-year-old woman who had complained of stomach pain.  

The 55-year-old patient had an appointment with the doctor at the government hospital on July 23 this year. He prescribed medicines for her stomach ache but when she showed the prescription at the local pharmacy, she was told that he had written down ‘Condom Nirodh’.

The government employee then complained to the hospital and a three-member committee was formed by the deputy commissioner (DC) to probe her allegation.

The committee found him guilty and a dismissal order against the surgeon Dr Ashraf Badr was issued. Dr Ashraf Badr has challenged the probe findings against him and said it was all a conspiracy by private nursing homes whose business was hit because of him.

 “The order to dismiss accused Dr Ashraf Badr has come from the state health department. We will put it in the meeting of the district health society as soon as the DC returns to the city,” East Singhbhum’s civil surgeon Dr Maheshwar Prasad said on Monday.

According to sources, Dr Badr had been charged with misconduct in the past and was once dismissed as well.
