Dr Kafeel Khan, who has been in the jail for the past seven months in the Gorakhpur hospital tragedy case, is a victim of conspiracy, said Indian Medical Association.
Dr Khan is one of the nine people arrested after a spate of child deaths, allegedly due to lack of oxygen and other medical reasons.
"15 infant were younger than one month. Six of the remaining 15, who were older than a month, passed away due to encephalitis. Others died due to various other reasons,"

With the fresh arrest, all the nine persons named in the FIR have been sent to custody.

As many as 13 children, 10 in NICU and three in general paediatric ward died in the past 24 hours, the newly-appointed principal of the college Dr PK Singh said today.
The hospital said most deaths are caused because malnourished children weighing less than a kilogram at birth come to the hospital.
37 children have died on August 27 and 28, of which 26 died in the neo natal ICU (NICU) and 11 in encephalitis ward.
Earlier in August, over 70 children had died in the same hospital due to lack of oxygen supply. The hospital as well as the government had received flak over the negligence.
Mishra had been suspended as principal of the college on August 12 after 60 deaths were reported in 48 hours.
Activist and advocate Dr Nutan Thakur said the PIL asserts that the State government and its agencies have been trying to defend the entire incident by negating the facts emerging in media about deaths taking place due to oxygen failure
The report has also mentioned that Pushpa Sales intended to indulge in financial bungling due to not being paid timely.
