THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The government has initiated disciplinary action against sixdoctors in connection with the controversial death of Bihari youth Satnam Singh. The moveevoked criticism with the Kerala Government Medical Officers' Association on Friday calling for a strike in protest in the hospitals where these doctors were working. 

While five of them were given punishment transfers, one was terminated from service. Dr Maya Raghavan and Dr Ramachandran Nair of Government Mental Health Centre, Peroorkada and Dr Hareesh Mani of Kollam district hospital, Dr Chintha Sukumaran of Karunagappally taluk hospital and Dr Kiran of Karunagappally taluk hospital were the doctors who were handed punishment transfer. 

Dr Maya Raghavan was transferred to the Attingal primary health centre, Dr Ramachandran Nair to Thiruvananthapuram general hospital, Dr Hareesh to Kadakkal taluk hospital, Dr Chintha Sukumaran to Thazhava community health centre and Dr Kiran to Kottarakkara taluk hospital. 

Dr Veena Thilak, who was working at the government mental health centre, Peroorkada, under NHRM contract, was terminated from service. 

The action against the doctors was based on the inquiry report filed by the vigilance wing of the directorate of health services, headed by additional director of health service, Dr P N Ramani. 

Meanwhile, the crime branch team probing the case has found out that three out of the four inmates of the hospital, who had allegedly attacked Satnam Singh, were accused in murder cases registered in Ernakulam, Kollam and Thiruvananthapuram districts. In a report filed before the court, the crime branch stated that they were brought to the hospital for treatment by the prisons authorities. But they were not taken back to the prisons after they had recovered. 

The crime branch has already arrested two persons, Anil Kumar, a second grade attender at the hospital and Vivekanandan, a prisons warden on duty at the hospital, in connection with the alleged murder of Satnam Singh.
