Dr KK Aggarwal and Ms Ira Gupta    20 June 2018

Yes. In one of its orders, the MCI observed: “The Ethics Committee considered the complaint against Dr. RV and after hearing both the parties and perusing the records and FIR, it is noted that Dr. RV has been accused of serious allegations of violating the faith, reposed in a doctor by hapless patient. He has been misusing his profession for indulging various acts and omission which is unbecoming of a medical practitioner. Having regards to seriousness and nature of allegations, the Ethics Committee recommends that license of Dr. RV be suspended during the pendency of the criminal case against him.”
