2013-06-30HC asks UMC to remove transit camps on land meant
HC asks UMC to remove transit camps on land meant for school Mumbai June 30, 2013 Last Updated at 16:30 IST Observing that the law that governs the state also applies to Ulhasnagar municipal corporation, the Bombay High Court directed removal of transit camps on two plots of land, reserved for playground and school. A division bench of Justices D Y Chandrachud and S C Gupte was hearing a public interest litigation filed by Aziz Amir Shaikh, challenging the construction of transit camps on the two plots. Shaikh had filed the PIL in 2010 alleging that the corporation permitted construction of transit camps in open spaces. "These plots were reserved for playgrounds and primary school. However, transit camps were constructed there three years back," his advocate said. Also, the UMC did not call for tenders to give contract for construction of the transit camps and gave work order for over Rs 1 crore, the petition alleged. Directing removal of the transit camps, Justice Chandrachud said on Friday, "Does the Ulhasnagar municipal corporation not fall under the law that governs the rest of the state? What is to be done if the corporation itself has committed illegality? The planning authority is duty bound to comply with the rules. "We would have been inclined to direct removal of the transit camps immediately, but considering the hardships faced by the persons living in those camps especially during monsoon season, the statement made by the civic body that the camps would be demolished by March 31, 2014 is accepted," the court said. The bench also directed the state government to consider the aspect of prosecution, if any, against errant officials of the Ulhasnagar civic body for non-compliance of rules. The High Court had in May this year imposed a cost of Rs 10,000 on the civic body for failing to file its affidavit in the petition.
2013-06-26Mahim hospital gets notice over 'botched' operatio
Mahim hospital gets notice over 'botched' operation Sumitra Debroy | TNN | Jun 26, 2013, 04.36 AM IST MUMBAI: Six doctors from the PD Hinduja Hospital in Mahim, including the medical director, were slapped with a legal notice by an Ulhasnagar businessman for "negligently" treating his wife. Rashmi Hingorani (41), who had come to the hospital for a minimally invasive kidney stone removal procedure, left after 45 days with an amputated leg. The family on Monday sent a notice to the hospital demanding Rs5 crore as compensation. They alleged that a "series of errors" on the part of the hospital has resulted in the patient losing her right lower limb. Rashmi, a mother of two, had undergone the minimally invasive procedure to remove kidney stones called per cutaneous nephro lithotomy (PCNL) in May, 2011. Urologist Dr Sharad Sagade, intensivist Dr Khusrav Bhajan, physician Dr Simran Singh, cardiologist Dr Navnit Kumar, rheumatologist Dr C Balakrishnan and medical director Dr Gustad Davar have been named in the notice. The said procedure went uneventful on May 20 till she suffered a cardiac arrest within few hours of being taken to the ward. Rashmi's husband Mahender alleged that she suffered the arrest as she was erroneously given an injection named 'Tramadol', administered for pain relief. Rashmi claimed she was never in painto need that injection. The hospital, however, has clarified that the injection is not known to cause such extreme reactions, and that it was given to patients for relief routinely. Davar said, "Rashmi was a patient with a history of chronic renal infection. She developed sepsis (blood infection) and suffered a cardiac arrest because of that. Sepsis probably led to hyper coagulation which could explain the multiple clots. There was no delay in removing the balloon or clearing the clots from her limb." He added that the doctors had actually saved the patient's life and that the complications were "rare" but not unheard of. But from the injection, said Mahender, things only went downhill. Doctors had inserted an intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) through the right lower limb to stabilise the heart. Soon, clots developed in that portion of the right leg following which Davar, also a cardio vascular surgeon, operated on her to clear it. The surgery did not yield much as the clots reappeared and Rashmi had to be reeled in for the second vascular surgery within few hours on May 23. "Even after two vascular surgeries, the clots in the legs remained," said Mahender. He added that the balloon was left inside the leg for 30 hours when the intensivist, who saw her first, advised that it should be removed in couple of hours. In between, Rashmi also developed clots in the right hand, which was removed successfully by Dr Davar. The doctors could not explain how clots appeared in the hand. Around June, after over a month's hospital stay, the doctors told the family that her limb had become gangrenous, and had to be amputated. The amputation was performed by Dr Davar, who termed it a life-saving surgery for Rashmi. The original problem --- Rashmi Hingorani gets admitted to PD Hinduja for a minimally invasive procedure to remove kidney stone --- Suffers cardiac arrest after being injected with an analgesic (pain killer) in the ward --- Doctors successfully resuscitate her and insert an intra-aortic balloon pump to improve heart's functioning --- Patient develops a clot in her right lower limb, which the hospital removes in two subsequent vascular surgeries --- She also develops a clot in the right hand which is removed successfully --- The clot in the limb becomes severe, turns gangrenous --- Leg is amputated from below the knee --- Patient originally admitted for a surgery requiring a day's stay goes home after 45 days Allegations by family --- Patient was given a pain relief injection when she was not experiencing any pain --- The intra-aortic balloon pump was removed several hours after it was first advised by the intensivist --- Two vascular surgeries were required to remove the clot from the leg --- The condition of the limb continued to worsen meaning the clot was still there --- A minimally invasive kidney stone removal surgery cannot end up with the patient losing limb--- The patient developed sepsis (blood infection), fallout of recurrent infections she suffered due to kidney problems --- The pain relief injection could not have caused any reaction--- The balloon was properly taken care of and removed when doctors deemed appropriate --- Two attempts were made to remove the clots in the leg and whatever possible was done --- The reason behind the clot in the hand could not be ascertained
2013-06-26Dancer sues hospital for Rs 5 cr after losing leg,
Dancer sues hospital for Rs 5 cr after losing leg, instead of kidney stones MAITRI PORECHA | Wed, 26 Jun 2013-06:50am , Mumbai , DNA Rashmi Hingorani had not anticipated that she would step out with an amputated leg when she got herself admitted at PD Hinduja Hospital to remove kidney stones. The 41-year-old resident of Ulhasnagar went through multiple surgeries and a series of health complications in the less than two months that she was in hospital. On Monday, she sent a legal notice to the hospital and its doctors, accusing them of medical negligence, and demanding Rs5 crore as compensation. A dancer by profession, Rashmi’s ordeal began on May 19, 2011, when she was admitted to Hinduja Hospital for a kidney stone surgery. “Her heart stopped beating after she was administered Tramzac drug injection following the surgery. In the clinical papers, the doctors wrote that it could have been an analgesic reaction,” said Mahendar, Rashmi’s husband. “She was then shifted to the ICU for four days where her condition was stabilised with cardio pulmonary resuscitation.” An intra-aortic balloon pump was inserted through Rashmi’s groin to stabilise blood flow to her heart. “After the pump was inserted, her hands and legs turned blue. There were multiple clots in the upper and lower limbs. While it took three surgeries to remove big clots from her right leg and hand, three smaller clots detected above the ankle were not removed. Eventually, her right leg turned gangrenous and had to be cut from below the knee,” Mahendar told dna. Doctors at Hinduja denied the allegation that drug reaction resulted in her leg being amputated. “Bacterial infection due to the kidney stone looks like a likely cause of septicemia which spread in her body. It may have caused the cardiac arrest and septic infection leading to the amputation of her right limb,” said Dr Gustad Daver, medical director and surgeon at Hinduja. “Also, there was no way the clots above the ankle could have been operated upon as they were very small in size, close to 2-3 mm,” Dr Daver said. A team of six doctors was involved in performing back-to-back surgeries after Rashmi’s health started deteriorating. It was the first time that a woman who was admitted with kidney stones had to have her limb amputated, the doctors said. They added that it was to save her life. The Hingoranis though aren’t convinced and are planning to drag the hospital to consumer court for medical negligence. “One kidney stone surgery turned into seven major surgeries, including an amputation that led to my wife losing her right lower limb. We had to change three prosthetic legs as the first two did not fit her. The current prosthetic leg costs more than Rs2 lakh and has to be changed every three years. Every year, we spend Rs 65,000 on maintenance,” said Mahendar. “We have demanded Rs5 crore from the hospital as compensation for recurring costs.” Experts, too, are baffled with the incident, saying it was rare. “It is very uncommon that a person who has been admitted for kidney stones has to get her leg amputated due to septic infection,” said Dr N Hase, head of department, nephrology at the BMC-run KEM Hospital. Traumatic times Rashmi underwent kidney stone removal surgery on May 20, 2011. She collapsed the next day, allegedly due to an analgesic reaction to a painkiller injection. Her heart had stopped beating. She was revived and an intra-aortic balloon pump device was inserted in her groin. Her right leg and hand developed clots; two were removed, three in the right leg weren’t. She then developed gangrene in the right leg which needed amputation.

Cop-turned-chain snatcher held along with accomplices; jewellery recovered Dailybhaskar.com Jun 15, 2013, 00:22 AM IST Mumbai:A cop who had been dismissed on corruption charges was arrested from Ulhasnagar on Saturday for running a jewellery snatching racket. According to a mumbaimirror.com report, Rajesh Ingole, a former head constable who is known to have served both the Mumbai and Thane police was nabbed when police, acting on a tip-off, raided a jewellery shop in the area. The Vitthalwadi police, who had got information that the gang was planning to sell the stolen pieces of jewellery in Camp No 4 in Ulhasnagar, arrested Ingole and his accomplices Manoj Raut (27), Haresh Mali (26), and Sajjan Sharma (40), all residents of Bhiwandi in Thane. When confronted by the police, Ingole claimed himself to be a policeman investigating a case of stolen jewellery. However a gold chain worth Rs 1.4 lakh was recovered from his person. On being grilled by the cops, Ingole confessed of having robbed the gold chain along with his accomplices on May 27 from a woman at Camp No 5 in Ulhasnagar.

2013-06-10Rogue cop running chain snatching gang nabbed
ROGUE COP RUNNING CHAIN SNATCHING GANG NABBED Mumbai Mirror | Updated: Jun 10, 2013, 10.04 AM IST The Ulhasnagar police on Saturday busted a gang involved in chain snatching that was run by a policeman who was dismissed in 2010. The kingpin, Rajesh Ingole, a former head constable, served in both the Mumbai and Thane police before being dismissed after a departmental enquiry indicted him on corruption charges. The police said he roped in around half-a-dozen history-sheeters after his dismissal. Ingole was caught on Saturday when a Vitthalwadi police team was tipped off about a gang that was about to sell stolen items to a jeweller. Plainclothes policemen, who were deployed at the shop in Camp No 4 in Ulhasnagar, picked up the gang members as soon as they entered the shop. Ingole, who was one of the four men detained, told the police that he was a cop and was investigating a case of stolen jewellery. But when the police frisked him they found a gold chain worth Rs 1.4 lakh in his pocket. Suspecting foul play, they grilled Ingole and he confessed that he had robbed the gold chain along with his accomplices on May 27 from a woman at Camp No 5 in Ulhasnagar. "Ingole confessed to robbing the gold chain on May 27," said an officer from Vitthalwadi police station. "He thought he wouldn't be caught if he lay low for a while. In fact, that case was registered in our police station. The complainant is teacher named Nalini Sonar, who was returning from school when the accused and his accomplices snatched the chain and fled on a bike." The police now suspect that Ingole and his gang may have been involved in cases in Mumbai, Navi Mumbai and Thane over the last one year. They also suspect that Ingole and his accomplices may have robbed people by posing as cops. There were several cases of fake cops robbing senior citizens in Thane and Mumbai and we suspect Ingole's gang could have been behind those incidents as well," said the officer.

The four were produced in the Ulhasnagar holiday court, which sent them to police custody till June 13.
