A Correspondent :
Chattogram Union of Journalist (CUJ) decided to wear black badge on Wednesday demanding trial of the physicians responsible of the death of Raifa Khan (2.5). The decision came from in a CUJ meeting on Monday.
An executive committee meeting will also be held on Thursday and next decision will be taken to progress the trial, said a press release.
The journalist leaders also demanded closure of Max Hospital for alleged negligence in the treatment of Rafia. On Jun 28, Raifa Khan, two-and-a-half-year-old daughter of Rubel Khan, Dainik Samakal's Senior Correspondent, had admitted to the hospital with a throat ache and then died while undergoing treatment the following day due to alleged wrong treatment.
Journalists launched protests claiming 'malpractice'. A committee from the Health Directorate and another led by the Chattogram civil surgeon began investigations into the incident. The civil surgeon's committee submitted its report on last Thursday, stating that the doctors, nurses and hospital administration had been deficient in their duties. It recommended steps be taken against the three doctors while the hospital fired two doctors for overseeing her care due to their negligence.
