10 more women filed complaints against the obstetrician and gynaecologist of the Kurunegala hospital who is in police custody on several charges today.

Accordingly, 15 women have already complained against the suspected doctor.

Dr. Seigu Siyabdeen Mohammed Safi of the Kurunegala hospital was arrested on the 24th of May for acquiring assets through suspicious means.

This was at his residence along the Kurunegala- Kandy road.

He was later handed over to the CID for further investigations.

The 42 year old had been serving as a gynecologist and obstetrician in three hospitals for over 13 years.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka Medical Council is holding a special meeting at its headquarters at this moment.

The chairman of the council Professor Harendra de Silva told our news team that the affected parties should submit affidavits to the Medical Council in order to initiate an investigation against the suspected doctor.

A national newspaper had reported recently about a doctor responsible for carrying out sterilization procedures during cesarean surgeries on 4000 mothers, and according to this report, revelations regarding the individual were made.

Police media spokesperson, SP Ruwan Gunasekera attending a media briefing yesterday noted that if there are complaints against the respective doctor, it should be submitted to the CID.

The suspect, Dr Safi Sahabdeen who represented the All Ceylon People’s Congress led by Minister Baduideen contested the last general election under the United National Front.

He resigned from public service as a prerequisite to contest the election but he was reinstated to Kurunegala hospital by a special Gazette issued by Minister Baduideen.

However,  former education minister of the North Western province, Sandhya Kumara Rajapaksa who says the appointment is illegal is preparing to file a complaint with the Bribery Commission.
