Operating theatre closed

he sole operating theatre at the Barasat district hospital was closed on Wednesday for at least a week after a “tetanus like germ” was found inside during an inspection by virologists. “Patients scheduled to be operated on at the hospital in the next seven days will be shifted to other hospitals or nursing homes,” said Sukanta Sil, the chief medical officer of health in North 24-Parganas. Jet flight: Jet Airways on Wednesday started a service between Calcutta and Dimapur in Nagaland. The flight will leave Calcutta at 10.10am and reach Dimapur at 12.05pm. It will leave Dimapur at 12.35pm and reach Calcutta at 2.55pm. The flight will be operated on all days except Tuesday. Hospital agitation: A probe committee set up by Calcutta Medical College and Hospital has endorsed the authorities’ decision to exclude the names of 18 students from the college electoral rolls. On Tuesday, 125 students were arrested after they had gheraoed some hospital officials for more than five hours to protest the decision to scrap the names. Arrested: Pramod Kumar Singh, 25, was arrested in Salt Lake on Tuesday for allegedly trying to unscrew the bolts of an ATM of a nationalised bank. Police said Singh had last week illegally withdrawn Rs 10,000 from the account of one of his friends. Theft: Around Rs 75,000 has been stolen from a Lake Road shop that sells tea leaves. The theft was discovered on Wednesday morning after the owner opened the shop. Police said the locks on the shutter and the drawer where the money was kept did not seem to have been tampered with. “We suspect an insider was involved in the theft,” said an officer.
