A case of medical negligence has been recorded in Hyderabad, wherein a diabetic man lost his vision following a botched hair transplant surgery.

After the surgery, Tariq Khusrou was infected with gas gangrene that had put his life at risk.

He went for the hair transplant in July 2016 at the clinic of the accused, Dr Khan, in Telangana. He fixed an appointment with the doctor who later operated on the victim and transplanted 2700 strands of hair within 6 hours. The entire surgery was priced at Rs 1,25,000.

The very next day, the victim claimed to have a high fever and his head got swollen.
