Out on bail, Dr. Kafeel Khan wants his job back

Lucknow: After getting bail by the Allahabad High Court in connection with the deaths at Gorakhpur hospital, Dr. Kafeel Khan on Saturday applied for the restoration of his job.

In a letter written to the Principal of BRD Medical College, Dr Khan stated, “I have been granted bail on 28-04-2018 as the charges of medical negligence and corruption against me, were found false by the Honourable High Court. Also, no evidence was found against me in the tender process of liquid oxygen. Hence, I would like to request you to restore me to the position of Spokesperson Paediatrics Department of BRD Medical College, Gorakhpur,” reported madhyamam.com.
