Some unknown culprits fired at the brother of Gorakhpur doctor Dr. Kafeel Khan, Kashif Jameel, on Sunday, near JP Hospital in Gorakhnath area of Uttar Pradesh.
Dr. Kafeel Khan who was imprisoned last year in relation to the deaths of children at a hospital in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh, claimed that the assault on his brother was a strategy to frighten him but he won’t compel.
Kashif Jameel, the victim brother of the doctor, was successfully operated after he was fired at in Gorakhpur on Sunday night.
“Allah rahem kare. M not going to bend (sic),” Dr. Khan, who was released on bail in April this year, tweeted.
“Firstly, I would like to thank all of you, as the bullets have been removed from my brother Kashif’s body, and the operation has been successful. He is currently in ICU. Three bullets were shot at him in order to kill him. Who has fired, we do not know. But it was 500 meters from Gorakhnath Temple, where the UP chief minister was staying,” he said.
He added that two boys came on a scooter and shot his brother and escaped.
“This is the state of law and order,” Khan said, criticising the police for the delay in treatment.
Jameel, 34 years old, was reportedly fired at by some unknown bike-borne men at around 11 pm on Sunday at Humayunpur north area near JP Hospital. He was hurried to a private nursing home after he underwent injuries on his right upper arm, neck, and chin, Kotwali police station inspector Ghanshyam Tiwari said.
Dr. Khan was the nodal officer of the hundred-bed acute encephalitis syndrome ward at the Baba Raghav Das Medical College and dismissed after the death of thirty children on August ten and August eleven last year. He was apprehended in September.
The Allahabad High Court permitted him bail in April this year.
He is one of the nine accused in the case involving the death of sixty-three children, including infants, in August 2017 within four days reportedly due to the disturbance in the oxygen supply.
