New Delhi, June 15 (IANS) Delhi Police Thursday questioned three doctors and three medical staff members of the Indraprastha Apollo Hospital here in connection with the Rahul Mahajan drug abuse case.
The police suspect the doctors and officials, under whose care the son of late Bharatiya Janata Party leader Pramod Mahajan was, had withheld some vital information related to the case.
The police said they would question some more doctors and staff of the hospital in the next few days.
Earlier, the police had questioned eight senior staff members of the hospital, including medical director Anupam Sibal.
"We have a list of 150 doctors and office staff who had attended to Rahul during his stay in the hospital, and will question each one of them to find out the truth," said a senior investigating official.
The police had registered a case against the Indraprastha Apollo Hospital June 9 on charges of providing false information about the case.
The case was registered in the Sarita Vihar police station in south Delhi.
Rahul was admitted to the hospital early June 2 in a critical condition following a drink-and-drug party the previous night.
While the hospital had initially said that the toxic screen test revealed no trace of any narcotics in Rahul's blood and urine samples, the Central Forensic Science Laboratory found traces of illegal drugs like heroine and cocaine in them.
