Dr. Subhadeep Khan was a young 32 year old doctor who primarily handled patients requiring critical care at the Burnpur Hospital operated by SAIL ISP at Burnpur.

On March 19, 2015 he was compelled to commit suicide due to the tremendous harassment caused by his wife, Mrs. Ruma Khan and her parents who had filed false 498A and other criminal cases against him and his aged parents and were using that as a tool to threaten him and extort money from him and his aged parents in collusion with certain persons from the Kulti Police Station.

Subhadeep has, in his suicide note, explicitly held Mrs. Ruma Khan and her parents Mr. Madhusudan Chandra and Mrs. Pranati Chandra responsible for his death. The accused have still not been arrested.

Subhadeep was a kind and generous person who was dearly loved and respected by his family, friends, colleagues and patients. He was an excellent doctor and was rewarded for his performance by SAIL for his excellence in patient care.

Subhadeep has saved thousands of lives and has always spread joy to all who have had the chance to meet him.

His death is a loss not only to his family and close friends but to the society at large.

Let the accused be arrested and the law take its course. Let justice be done so that Subhadeep’s soul rests in peace and other innocent, kind, bright young men are not sacrificed at the alter of brazen misuse of benevolent laws by malicious women.

Let those filing false criminal charges be severely penalised. Let this case be an example to all women who wish to abuse benevolent laws like Section 498A of the IPC for extorting money and to make innocent men suffer.

  1. Dear Admin,

    With all due respect to Doctor Subhadeep, I would like to mention here that the issue is still subjudice. So, it would be in the best interest of justice if you kept your personal opinion to yourself rather than monger it in the public fora. Judging a case on the basis of different facts and circumstances is the duty as well as the prerogative of the courts and courts alone. Don’t use your media power to pass a ruling on a subject.

    If it makes any more sense to you, I would also like to throw some legal perspective on this issue:
    Contempt of Courts Act:
    Section 2(c) criminal contempt means the publication (whether by words, spoken or written, or by signs, or by visible representation, or otherwise) of any matter or the doing of any other act whatsoever which
    (ii) prejudices, or interferes or tends to interfere with, the due course of any judicial proceeding; or
    (iii) interferes or tends to interfere with, or obstructs or tends to obstruct, the administration of justice in any other manner.

    I write this without any prejudice towards your website. But you must realise that your media trial is going to affect the court trial.
    To substantiate this view, I would recommend to you this link :

    I reiterate, I don’t mean any offence to the Doctor.

    • Hi Prakash, that the matter is sub-judice doesn’t prevent media from merely publishing things on it.

      Also, we are not passing a ruling. We are publicizing and advocating, which we are entitled to.
