Indian doctor faces manslaughter charge in Bahrain

Dubai, Dec 19 : Two doctors, including an Indian, are facing trial for manslaughter in Bahrain nine months after a woman died on the operating table.

Ruqaya Mahmood was reportedly suffering from diabetes and high blood pressure and could not undergo surgery, but a Brazilian plastic surgeon and an Indian anesthesiologist went ahead with the operation, the Gulf Daily News reported Thursday.

Prosecutors said the defendants had failed to provide the victim, who was in her 50s, proper medical treatment.

Both the doctors, however, pleaded not guilty at the Lower Criminal Court Wednesday.

The lawyer for the Brazilian surgeon requested the court to summon the medical panel, which examined the victim, to the next hearing.

The judge adjourned the trial till Jan 16.
