DAP lawmaker lodges report on missing Parliament clinic doctor

Ipoh Barat MP M. Kula Segaran has lodged a missing person's report over the disappearance of Dr B. Sugumaran, a senior medical officer based in a clinic in Parliament, after he failed to report for duty for more than a month. He said lawmakers were concerned about the absence of the popular 50-year-old doctor, who served in the designated clinic in Parliament grounds, especially during meetings. "The Parliament clinic staff said Dr. Sugumaran did not step into the office since January this year. "I have also tried contacting his friends and relatives to no avail. "He is a bachelor with parents past 80 years old and they have yet to lodge a report, therefore I decided to do it. "He is also my personal doctor and I hope police will be able to trace his whereabouts," Kula Segaran said at the Ipoh district police station this afternoon. He said he had asked Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam about Dr. Sugumaran's absence and was told that it would be looked into. "I did not get any response after that, which is why I have lodged a police report," said Kula Segaran. Kula said Dr Sugumaran, whose address is in Taman Sri Rampai, Kuala Lumpur, had once served at the Ipoh General Hospital and is stationed at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital. The doctor has been in the civil service for the past 23 years.  – February 17, 2016.]]>
