According to the spokesperson of the Kurunegala Teaching Hospital, as at yesterday, the number of complaints by women against the obstetrician and gynecologist Shafi Shihabdeen has risen up to 112. Dr Shafi Shihabdeen has been arrested on charges of earning unlimited assets.
Women in various areas of Kurunegala, Wariyapola, Galewela, Dambulla, Mawathagama, Melsiripura, Ambanpola, Polgahawela, Polpithigama, Hiripitiya and Rideegama had made their complaints.
The women said that they suffered sterilization as well as other side effects after the caesarean operations performed by the doctor Shafi. They had come to the hospital in tears following an awareness made by the media.
There was a complaint made by a woman who had become totally blind after the caesarean operation, was also unable to have any children after. She said that having failed to find the cause of her condition, Shafi Shihabdeen who performed the caesarean, is suspected of causing the chaos.
Medical experts are continuing to state that the Fallopian tube can not be harmed by caesarean. In addition, they say that an operation is carried out by a group of doctors, therefore it is difficult to do something not relevant, secretively, during an operation.
However, what is truly happened can only be revealed by formal medical examination of women who come with complaints after the media awareness.
