Rajasthan government today suspended three doctors, including a principal medical officer, and shunted out five others in connection with 90 infant deaths in last two months at a state-run hospital in Banswara district. Disciplinary action was taken against four nursing employees also in connection with the deaths at the MG Hospital, a statement said. Taking action on an inquiry report, state health minister Kalicharan Saraf ordered suspension of principal medical officer (PMO) Dr V K Jain, gynaecologist Dr P C Yadav and block PMO Dr Jitendra Banjara. Saraf had ordered an inquiry after the matter came to light last week and sought a report in three days.

It, however, did not reveal the findings of the inquiry. Banswara district is nearly 500 kms from Rajasthan capital Jaipur.
