A day after his brother was allegedly shot at by unidentified assailants, Dr. Kafeel Khan, an accused in the BRD Medical Hospital case involving the death of 63 children, today said he was not going to bend. His brother, Kashif Jameel, was operated on successfully and the bullets removed, Khan said. Khan was jailed last September and released on bail in April this year.

Jameel, 34, was shot at allegedly by unidentified bike-borne assailants around 11 pm yesterday at the Humayunpur north area near the JP hospital in UP's Gorakhpur city. He was rushed to a private nursing home. Jameel sustained injuries on his right upper arm, neck, and chin, Kotwali police station inspector Ghanshyam Tiwari said. "This is the state of law and order," Khan said.
"Jameel is currently in ICU. Three bullets were shot at him in order to kill him. Who has fired, we do not know. But it was 500 meters from Gorakhnath Temple, where the UP Chief Minister was staying," Khan said.
Khan was the nodal officer of the 100-bed AES ward at the Baba Raghav Das Medical College and was removed following the deaths of 30 children on August 10-11 last year. He is one of the nine accused in the case, involving the death of 63 children, including infants, in August 2017 within four days due to disruption in the supply of oxygen.
