HUBBALLI: The Hubballi second JMFC court has awarded one-and-a-half years’ imprisonment to a doctor who was considered responsible for the death of a pregnant woman.
The doctor has also been told to pay a fine of Rs 30,000 for the negligence.
Lakshmi Kulkarni was admitted into the nursing home run by Dr Sabitha Kalyanpurkar in Deshpande Nagar in 2008 by her husband for delivery. Dr Kalyanpurkar gave her injection assuring that she would deliver in three to four hours. Lakshmi, however, had heavy bleeding and died.
Kulkarni approached the court on January 2, 2009, but the matter has continued for 11 years.
The JMFC second division court bench, led by judge Vishwanath Mooguti, has now awarded the accused imprisonment and fine for the death.
Advocate Sunil K Kulkarni argued the case for the complainant.
