Sassoon Hospital’s functioning is under scrutiny due to allegations of misconduct, including the appointment of five superintendents in a year and a half, ragging cases of female students, and tampering with blood samples.

New revelations are coming out every day regarding the Porsche vehicle accident. The blood samples were thrown in the trash and two doctors Dr. Ajay Taware and Dr. Shrihari Haalnor, along with policeman Atul Ghatkamble were taken into custody. In the meantime, Dean Vinayak Kale of Sassoon Hospital has been placed on mandatory leave.

Dr Kale has been forced to go on mandatory leave without taking into account how severe the situation is or the fact that, as the head, he had no control over it. Dr Kale has been placed on mandatory leave until further orders, according to the directive. While he is on required leave, Dr Chandrakant Mhaske, Principal of Ahilya Devi Holkar Government Medical College, Baramati, has taken on the additional duties.

The hospital has been embroiled in controversy for years, including aiding drug smuggler Lalit Patil, causing a patient’s death, and racketing a kidney. Two doctors have been arrested for altering the blood sample of a minor accused in a Porsche car accident case. A committee, chaired by Dr Pallavi Saple, has been appointed to investigate the matter.

Sassoon Hospital’s functioning is under scrutiny due to allegations of misconduct, including the appointment of five superintendents in a year and a half, ragging cases of female students, and tampering with blood samples. Dr. Vinayak Kale, the hospital’s founder, is expected to take responsibility and provide updates, but his obstinate stance has raised suspicions about the hospital’s operations.
