Prof Dr Mamun Al Mahtab Shwapnil, chairman of Hepatology department at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU), and two other doctors were sued for the death of Dr Mohammad Towfiq Enam.
The two other doctors are Prof Dr Abdul Wahab Khan, consultant laparoscopic surgeon of Islami Bank Central Hospital in Kakrail, and Prof Dr Mohammad Ali, hepatobiliary surgeon of BRB Hospital in Kalabagan.
Senior physiotherapist Akteruzzaman Mia, father of the victim, filed the case with the court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Rajesh Chowdhury yesterday, court sources said.
The magistrate took the case into cognisance and recorded the complainant’s statement.
The court also directed CID to investigate the case with an assistant superintendent of police (ASP) ranked official and submit a probe report before it by July 19.
In the complaint, Akteruzzaman said the three doctors are responsible for the death of his son Towfiq.
“The accused treated my son wrongly with serious negligence, while he [victim] was taken to them at their respective private chambers. Instead of right treatment, the accused took money from us in name of various tests through fraudulence by breaching the trust,” the complainant alleged.
Towfiq died while undergoing treatment at BRB Hospital on May 30.
The complainant on June 15 went to Kalabagan Police Station to file a case, but police suggested to file a case with the court, the case statement added.
