Dr KK Aggarwal and Ms Ira Gupta    15 June 2018

Yes. The following case clarifies this.

In its order (F.No. 196/2011), the Ethics Committee noted as follows:

“The Ethics Committee considered the matter and noted that despite notice dated 10.10.2012 sent to complainant, to appear before the Ethics Committee, the said complainant did not appear before the Ethics Committee. The Committee also noted that the complainant in his letter dated nil, received by the Council on 14.05.2012, had stated that he has withdrawn his complaint dated 02.05.2011 lodged against the doctors. The Ethics Committee observed that the complainant seemed no longer interested to pursue his complaint and accordingly the Ethics Committee decided to dispose of the above mentioned complaint.”
