The division bench comprising Justices N Kirubakaran and S Baskaran before whom the plea came up on Thursday, admitted an impleading plea moved by Aniruda Medical Organisation (P) Ltd (AMO) represented by its director Dr P Uma Maheswari.
Appearing before the court, she explained the modalities of TTP and the types of diseases that could be cured by it. She submitted that the condition of similar kind of patients have been made comfortable by TTP. The bench recorded her submission that AMO could take care of the child and in a month it will be able to show some positive response from the patient.
While the boy T Pavendhan’s father, who had earlier sought permission for passive euthanasia for the child, agreed to visit the hospital to get convinced with the reasons given by it and the facilities available, the bench also recorded the submission made by Pragan Foundation that it is ready to take care of the child throughout his life.
Also, Dr KG Kanmani, Siddha doctor attached to the Arani Government Hospital, submitted the Siddha system of medicine can cure the child and produced a research article titled “Parallel Analysis of Kiranthi with birth asphyxia and Neonatal Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy” to substantiate her claim.
The bench also appreciated the donation of Rs 1 lakh given by a person called John Prabhakar, who did not want to disclose his company’s name.
However, with both ASG G Karthikeyan and State Additional Government Pleader Madhumathi submitting there is no scheme available at the State and central level to provide medical and financial care and seeking more time to get instructions, the bench posted the case to October 23.
