AIIMS Doctors Assists Police in Rahul Mahajan’s Drug Abuse Cas

Doctors of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) are helping the police unravel the medical complexities in the drug abuse case involving Rahul Mahajan. //

The police have obtained the medical records of Rahul, son of late Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Pramod Mahajan, and managed to substantiate the "conspiracy" of the Indraprastha Apollo Hospital to hide information about the case, a senior official said.

"Senior doctors of AIIMS are helping us to analyse the medication and treatment given to Rahul," added the official.

A senior official investigating the case said the doctors of Apollo who were questioned by the police could not satisfactorily answer most of the questions. He said the doctors and staff of the hospital who were involved in fudging information had been identified.

He said the police had also found evidence to prove that the medical reports were tampered with.

"We have found that there was no need for the doctors to keep Mahajan in the ICU for four days; that medication could have been given outside the ICU also," he added.

The police had summoned three doctors of Apollo - Prasad Rao, who headed the team that treated Rahul, medical director Anupam Sibal and senior doctor Mukund Pandey - for questioning Tuesday.

Eleven Apollo officials have thus far been questioned. The police have a list of 150 doctors and medical staff who will be questioned.

Rahul was admitted to the hospital June 2 in a serious condition following a drink-and-drugs party the previous night at the official residence of the senior Mahajan. Bibek Moitra, a close aide of Pramod Mahajan, died of suspected drug overdose after the binge.

The police registered a case against Apollo on June 9 on charges of providing false information.

The hospital had initially maintained that Rahul's toxic screen test did not reveal any narcotics in his blood and ur ine samples. However, the Central Forensic Sciences Laboratory found traces of heroin and cocaine in the blood samples of Rahul and Moitra.
