Professor of Gynecology and Obstetrics Dr Sangjukta applied for the renewal of her Bangladesh Medical and Dental Council (BMDC) registration.
However, BMDC’s law and order committee members decided to hold Dr Sangjukta’s renewal application for now.
The council members informed the development to journalists after a meeting held in the capital on Friday (June 23).
When asked regarding Dr Sangjukta’s renewal of registration BMDC Disciplinary Committee Chairman Dr. Md. Ehteshamul Huq Choudhury said, “It’s not something that Sangjukta doesn’t have a registration, it’s that she didn’t renew it after 2010.”
“Sangjukta recently applied to renew her registration. But we have put her application on hold for now. We will see what BMDC law says, accordingly we will take action,” he said.
In reply to a query regarding Sangjukta’s Facebook Live Ehteshamul Huq said Sangjukta’s action was unethical, and she did an unethical job. She cannot go on live, without the patient’s consent.
“We would like to draw the attention of the executive committee of BMDC regarding the accident that happened at the Central Hospital on June 18 and the information that was surfaced in various media. If the Executive Committee deems it necessary to do something in this regard, they will do so,” Ehteshamul Huq said regarding the meeting.by
