Nagpur: Two reputed private hospitals have come under crime branch scanner for failure to report treatment of accident victims to the nearest police stations as per the protocol of medico-legal case.
One hospital at Dhantoli had preliminary treated the victims while the other had admitted one of the victims with a fractured hand on January 25. Three friends had a miraculous escape after their car rammed a divider near Dhantoli police station at hight speed. Two were injured in the incident.
It’s learnt that the CCTV footage of the car reflected the manner in which it had been driven at breakneck speed. Prior to the accident at Dhantoli, it rammed a sidewall too under a railway bridge.
Though there were no casualties, the controversy around the accident took a serious turn as city police chief Amitesh Kumar transferred the case to the crime branch after registering an offence at Dhantoli police station. It’s learnt that the decision of the top brass to conduct a thorough probe came after serious lapses were noticed in the role of the hospitals and attempts made to hush up the incident.
Police sources said three friends had gone to a mall for dinner. After leaving the place, they drove the car on Great Nag Road towards Dhantoli before meeting with accident in which the vehicle was heavily damaged.
Sources said an offence has been registered at the Dhantoli police station against the driver of the vehicle. Cops are now verifying who was behind the wheels with the help of eye-witnesses and technical details. “Our investigation is at the preliminary stage at this point. We are collecting corroborative evidences including electronic findings. Statements of the persons concerned, including doctors, are being recorded,” said an officer.
