Indraprastha Medical Corp. Ltd. vs State NCT of Delhi & Ors. Crl. M.C. No. 827/2010 on 2 August, 2010 “The offence of criminal negligence requires a specific state of mind in respect of the person committing the offence. The offence of medical criminal negligence cannot be fastened on the company since the company can neither treat nor operate a patient of its own. It is the Doctor working in the company who treats & performs operations. It is the Doctor who examines the patients and prescribes medicines.”
