Bathinda, December 3

The city police have booked another medical lab technician (MLT) in the infamous HIV-positive blood transfusion row that took place over the past two months here at the blood bank unit of the Bathinda Civil Hospital.

MLT Richa Goyal was booked under Section 269 (Negligent act likely to spread infection of disease dangerous to life) of the IPC and relevant sections of the Drugs and Cosmetics Act. Goyal was booked at the behest of the district attorney who also sought documents for scrutiny to find out the role of Dr Karishma Goyal in the matter.

Kotwali SHO Devinder Singh said: "We have booked MLT Richa Goyal as the blood issued by her later infected patients. We have conducted raids but could not arrest her. Earlier, MLT Baldev Singh Romana was booked and arrested on charges of attempt to murder and is in judicial custody."

Apart from Richa Goyal and Baldev Singh Romana, Dr Karishma has already been dismissed from her services by the Health Department after cases of HIV-positive blood transfusion to thalassemia patients started to surface in October this year. — TNS
