By now complaints from 129 mothers have been received against arrested Dr. Seigu Siyaabdeen Mohamed Saafi who served at the Obstetrics and Gynaecology Unit of the Kurunegala Teahing Hospital.

While 114 mothers had lodged complaints at the Kurunegala Teaching Hospital by yesterday, 13 complaints had been received at the Dambulla Base hospital and two complaints had been received at the Gallewela District Hospital.

While this doctor who had served at the Kurunegala Teaching Hospital was arrested last Friday night, he was handed over to the CID for further investigation.

Meanwhile, Health Ministry Secretary Wasantha Perera has appointed a 6-member committee to probe the obstetrician and gynaecologist, Seigu Siyabdeen Mohamed and the complaints made against him and submit a report within a month.

In addition, she has informed the Sri Lanka Medical Council to conduct an independent inquiry into the allegations.

Health administrators have been informed not to divulge information except for technical details to the media without obtaining prior permission from the ministry secretary.

In a communiqué, acting health service director, Dr Lal Panapitiya says action will be taken against hospital administrators who fail to comply with the instructions of the ministry.
