Government reportedly terminates two doctors

Shopian, June 22,: Government has reportedly terminated two doctors who were part of the post-mortem team in the infamous Asiya Neelofar Shopian rape and murder case. Sources told news agency Kashmir News Trust that Dr Bilal Dalal and Dr Nighat Shaheen have been terminated from their services by the government.Notably, Omar Abdullah-led government back in 2009 had suspended both these doctors who had conducted the two autopsies. Dr Nighat’s report indicated rape of both women and her findings were substantiated by a forensic report. However, shortcomings in the autopsy meant the cause of death could not be forensically established.  Dr Nighat Shaheen has allegedly been accused of conspiring to defame, discredit and cause injury to the personnel of police and security forces and to get them wrongfully convicted for a capital offense by creating false reports.Dr Bilal Ahmad Dalal has been accused by CBI of wrongly mentioning the lacerated wound on the frontal portion of Asiya Jan’s head as incised wound. It has also accused the doctor of falsely opining on the cause of death as haemmorhagic shock and bleeding from multiple injuries in the case of Asiya Jan and neurogenic shock in the case of Neelofar Jan. Even the then-Jan Commission had taken note of lapses by doctors in conducting autopsies.Though sources confirmed the termination of Dr Bilal Ahmed Dalal and Dr Nighat Shaheen, however, there was so far no word from an official quarter in this regard.(KNT)
