Kafeel khan, accused in Gorakhpur children’s death case, arrested for fraud

Dr Kafeel Khan, who was arrested last year in connection with the death of several infants in the Baba Raghav Das medical college and hospital, has been arrested twice in the last couple of days. According to reports, Dr Kafeel Khan was arrested on Saturday for creating a ruckus at the district hospital at Behraich. He was granted bail on the same day, only to be arrested again on Sunday in connection with a 9-year-old fraud case.

According to reports, Khan, a paediatrician, had reached the Bahraich district hospital with two other associates and had started inquiring about the treatment of infants. He reportedly interfered in the work of doctors and other medical staff. Following which, he was called to the chamber of the Hospital’s paediatrician Dr KK Verma and was arrested. He was released on bail later.

A day after his arrest at Bahraich, Dr Khan has been reportedly arrested in Gorakhpur again for his involvement in a  fraud case. According to reports, Kafeel Khan was arrested along with his brother Adeel Khan were arrested by the Gorakhpur police on charges of fraud and forging documents.

Kafeel and his brother Adeel had reportedly used forged documents and signatures to open a bank account in SBI in 2009 and had made transactions of about Rs 2 crores. They were produced before a local court and were sent to judicial custody. A resident of Gorakhpur named Mudassar Alam had filed an FIR in cantonment station earlier this year alleging that Adeel Khan and his associate Faizan had opened a bank account in Faizan’s name using Mudassar Alam’s photographs and documents. Transactions worth Rs 2 crores were done through the account and the bulk of the money was used to pay for Kafeel Khan’s medical education at Manipal University. Faizan was reportedly abroad so could not be arrested. Charges under the section 420(cheating and dishonesty), 467(forgery of valuable security) and 471(using forged documents) have been levelled against the arrested brothers.

It is notable here that Dr Kafeel Khan’s family has reportedly been involved in several property disputes and legal cases. As pointed by journalist Swati Sharma earlier, Kafeel’s brother Qasif Jameel was attacked in June last year by some litigants his family is contending against.

Dr Kafeel Khan was one of the nine accused arrested after the deaths of several infants in the BRD Medical college hospital grabbed nation-wide attention. Khan was arrested after it was revealed that he was involved with taking oxygen cylinders meant for the hospital away for use in his own nursing home. He was charged under sections 120-B(criminal conspiracy), 308 (attempt to commit culpable homicide) and 409(criminal breach of trust by a public servant). Khan reportedly not only ran a private clinic while serving as a nodal officer of the paediatrics department at the BRD medical college, but he also had other allegations against him too. He was allegedly arrested in 2009 in Delhi on charges impersonating someone in the examination for medical registration. Some reports have also claimed that he was suspended from Manipal University for criminal cases against him.
