Doctor arrested while taking Rs 1 lakh bribe to change Post- Mortem report

Panna: A government doctor was today allegedly caught red-handed while accepting a bribe of Rs one lakh for tweaking a post-mortem report in a dowry death case at Shahnagar in the district.

Dr Nirmal Jasuja (55), working with a community health centre, allegedly demanded Rs two lakh from Mahesh Singh Thakur, resident of neighbouring Chhattarpur district, said inspector B M Dwivedi of Lokayukta police.

 Thakurs daughter allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself on February 12. A day earlier she had called up her father, saying that her in-laws were harassing her for dowry, according Thakurs complaint.
When Thakur contacted Jasuja for autopsy report of his daughter, the doctor allegedly told him that if Thakur paid Rs 2 lakh — one lakh for him and another one lakh for police officials — he can give a report stating that it was a murder.

Jasuja asked him to pay the bribe in two instalments of Rs one lakh, according to the complainant.

After Thakur lodged a complaint, Lokayukta police laid a trap and arrested the doctor while taking the money, inspector Dwivedi said.

He was booked under the Prevention of Corruption Act and further investigations was on, he said.
