Mangaluru, Sept 24: Reports are doing rounds that sandalwood actress and Kannada television host Anushree has been summoned by the Mangaluru Central Crime Branch as part of an escalating probe into the state-wide drugs scandal.

If reports are to be believed, Mangaluru CCB today sent a notice to Anushree through Whatsapp to appear for interrogation. Further details regarding the date of investigation are awaited.

Reports also claimed that Anushree's summons are based on the investigation of Bollywood dancer and choreographer Kishore Shetty.

Kishore was arrested by the CCB Mangaluru on September 19 for allegedly possessing drugs. It was reported that Kishore Shetty consumed synthetic drugs and had been arrested by the CCB sleuths after they received information about the same. According to reports, Kishore has revealed that Anushree used to be a part of a few parties.

However, Anushree confirmed to a regional news channel that she has not received any notice from the Mangaluru CCB as of now. She also mentioned that she is deeply hurt and disheartened by such kind of news.

Anushree is one of the highest-paid anchors of Kannada television, reports suggest. She has been given a tough competition to her contemporaries in the showbiz world.

Bengaluru, Sept 12: As many as 36 doctors from private hospitals, nursing homes and clinics succumbed to Covid-19 in the past three months across Karnataka, according to the state chapter of the Indian Medical Association (IMA).

The deceased include gynaecologists, psychiatrists and general physicians who are yet to be covered by the government’s compensation scheme.

IMA-Karnataka has written to the CM seeking compensation for their families. A psychiatrist from Ballari, a gynaecologist from Shivamogga, a 65-year-old anaesthetist from Mysuru, a 68-year-old general medical practitioner from Bengaluru and a paediatrician from Athani are among the deceased.

Pvt docs not considered Covid warriors?

Dr Shivanand Murgode, 69, a gynaecologist from Hukkeri in Belagavi district, who was working even during the lockdown, died on July 31.

“He was conducting deliveries, surgeries and consultations throughout the pandemic. All he would ask was if the patient had any symptoms. He may have treated asymptomatic carriers. He was very uncomfortable wearing PPEs and could not use them. He would wear a mask and gloves. We lost him because he was a workaholic,” said his ophthalmologist-son Dr Sachin Murgode.

Dr Madhusudan Kariganuru, president, IMA, Karnataka alleged that the state government has not considered these private healthcare professionals as Covid warriors. “A private doctor should also be covered by government insurance of Rs 50 lakh. The government must look into the matter,” he added.

An IMA member from Bengaluru, who has been treating Covid patients said the death of doctors was the result of hospitals turning into hotspots. “These doctors have treated confirmed and suspected Covid-19 caes but are not considered Covid warriors. They were all infected possibly through patients they treated. No family of dead doctors has been contacted by the government so far,” the doctor said.

In Mysuru, a septuagenarian doctor, who retired from the medical education department, died in July. “He developed fever two days after treating a vegetable vendor with Covid symptoms. He sent his patient for testing and he turned out to be positive,” his relative said.

However, the health and family welfare department is unaware of the deaths of these doctors. Pankaj Kumar Pandey, commissioner, said he has asked all medical and paramedical associations to submit a list of doctors, nurses, technicians and other healthcare workers who have succumbed to Covid-19.
