Agartala, February 10, 2024 — The Tripura health department has launched an investigation into a concerning incident where a supplier of orthopaedic implant materials was allegedly seen assisting surgeons in the operation theatre of a state-run hospital. The incident, brought to light by a viral video on social media, has sparked outrage and calls for immediate action.

The purported video, circulated widely on social media platforms, shows a man identified as Jantu Debnath wearing a surgeon's apron and purportedly assisting two orthopaedic surgeons during surgical procedures at the operation theatre of Indira Gandhi Memorial (IGM) Hospital on January 19.

IGM Hospital, the second largest government hospital in Tripura, found itself under scrutiny as the video raised questions about the integrity of its surgical practices. Dr. Supriya Mallik, the Director of Health Services, stated that a four-member committee, headed by Joint Director of Health Services Dr. Souvik Debbarma, has been formed to thoroughly investigate the incident. The committee has been tasked with submitting its findings within a week.

Dr. Mallik emphasized that appropriate action would be taken if the allegations are substantiated, underscoring that allowing a businessman to participate in surgical procedures at a government hospital is unacceptable.

However, Dr. Debashri Debbarma, the medical superintendent of IGM Hospital, refuted the allegations, stating that Jantu Debnath was not present nor involved in assisting the orthopaedic surgeons during the surgical procedures. Dr. Debbarma denounced such unauthorized involvement by outsiders and reiterated the hospital's commitment to upholding professional standards in patient care.

The incident has raised concerns about the integrity and security protocols within the operation theatres of government hospitals. The outcome of the investigation will be eagerly awaited by the public as authorities strive to ensure accountability and maintain the trust of patients in the healthcare system.
