Dear All,

Dr. Kafeel Khan is in Mathura Jail since 29th January, 2020 i.e. 107 days, in a fake case lodged against him 5 months before, inspite of bail granted to him by District Judge on 10th February, 2020.

Who is Dr. Kafeel Khan? 

The well known Doctor who saved lives of hundreds of children in the Baba Raghav Das Medical College Hospital at Gorakhpur U.P.. The tragedy was due to carelessness and corruption on the part of the hospital administration which is run by the U.P. Government.

Why Dr. Kafeel Khan has been tortured?

Nothing else, but for his goodness which exposed the ugly face of corrupt administration responsible for death of the Children in Government Hospital in U.P. Then followed a threat by U.P. Chief Minister and then all things like filing of fake F.I.Rs, Misuse of Law and power disrespect for Judiciary etc. simply to torture Dr. Kafeel Khan.

What is the entire incident for which this petition is being made? 

Open mockery of justice by those responsible for maintaining Law and order. The judge passed an order granting bail to Doctor on 10th February, 2020, the order is then shown to the Jail Police Authority at Mathura Jail on 12th February, 2020. The order was overlooked and ignored by the Police and by misuse of law and power Dr. Kafeel was detained by passing a detention order under the National Security Act effective from 13th February, 2020 and thus the law has been used to do injustice, instead of justice. Hence this petition to safeguard life and liberty of Dr. Kafeel Khan and uphold the constitution. 

What are the consequences of misusing the law in this case? 

This is one of the most heinous example of law being misused to settle political vendetta and to punish and finish the activists who express their dissent against atrocities of those in power. On 12th May, 2020 the order passed under the NSA for detention was further extended for 3 months w.e.f. 13th May, 2020, which is again a misuse of Law and Authority. The hardened criminals are out on bail and here is a Gold Medalist Doctor who is detained in jail, inspite of the fact that he was released on bail. Just mockery of justice and nothing else.

“If anything happens to the life of Dr. Kafeel Khan, in these vicious atmosphere, the entire system shall be held responsible for the same.”

Our Message to you :
