New Delhi:

A doctor in Jharkhand is set to be sacked for prescribing condom to a 55-year old lady who complained of stomach pain. The state government has decided to terminate the services of doctor Asraf Badar. The incident happened in Ghatshila sub-division hospital in East Singhbhum district of the state where Asraf Badar has been working on a contractual basis with the hospital.

Earlier in July, a class 4-grade woman employee went the Ghatshila government hospital of West Singhbhum district complaining stomach pain where Badar asked the woman to use condom.

“The order to dismiss accused Dr Ashraf Badr has come from the state health department. We will put it in the meeting of the district health society as soon as the DC returns to the city,” HT quoted East Singhbhum’s civil surgeon Dr Maheshwar Prasad as saying.

The incident came to light after the lady showed prescription to a local medicine shopkeeper. 

The issue later was raised in Jharkhand Assembly by Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) legislator Baharagora Kunal Sarangi.
A committee was set up to look into the matter and the state health department found Badar guilty. It instructed the authorities to take immediate steps to remove him.
