A 35-year-old doctor from Kerala allegedly killed himself on Thursday. It is learnt that he took the extreme step following allegations raised against him regarding the death of a 7-year-old girl.
The girl had died of heart attack while undergoing a leg surgery. The deceased identified as Dr Anoop Krishnan, was the owner of Anoop Ortho Care Hospital in Kollam. He hanged himself after cutting a nerve in his arm.
Dr Krishnan, an Orthopedic Surgeon was found hanging inside his house on October 1. He had also cut his vein before hanging himself. The young medic had also inscribed the word ‘sorry’ with his blood inside the bathroom before he took the extreme step.
It is alleged that the young doctor was under stress for days after a 7-year-old girl who he had operated in his clinic died due to some complications. The girl also had a heart condition when she was admitted to Anoop Ortho Care Hospital for a surgery to fix a bent on her leg.
Due to the girl’s heart condition, many others had reportedly declined to perform the surgical procedure.
Surgery Happened On September 23
On September 23, Abhiya S Lakshmi, the daughter of Sajeev Kumar and Vineetha Kumari, natives of Puthoor, underwent the surgery at the hospital but died during the procedure after suffering a heart attack.
The police said they are yet to ascertain whether the suicide was directly linked to the patient’s death. Dr Anoop is survived by his wife Dr. Archana and son Adithya Krishna.
