Report: Hospital staff members in fatal MRI case await charges

Two staff members at a hospital in India where a man was killed in an MRI suite still await legal charges due to confusion between police and municipal authorities over the investigation of the incident, according to a news report.

The two hospital employees were suspended by the hospital after they failed to prevent Rajesh Maru from entering the scanner room carrying an oxygen tank. Maru was sucked into the scanner and killed.

The employees have yet to be charged, however, according to an August 29 article published by the Free Press Journal. The police reportedly are waiting for the completion of a report by Brihanmumbai Municipal (BMC), the municipal authority governing Mumbai, while the BMC believes that charges can be filed without the completed report.

Further, BMC authorities stated that they have already filed a preliminary report that could be used as the basis for filing charges, while the police maintain that municipal officials have yet to submit the reports they need.
