The Gorakhpur hospital's baby killing accused Dr Kafeel Khan's brother was shot last night around 11 pm. Men on a motorcycle allegedly shot Kaseef Jameel, who is a businessman by profession and fled the spot. Dr Kafeel Khan was out on bail in connection with Gorakhpur hospital tragedy case.

The doctor took Twitter on Monday morning and said, "Allah rahem kare. M not going to bend." He told reporters that the bullets have been removed from his brother's body, and "the operation has been successful. He is currently in ICU. Three bullets were shot at him in order to kill him. Who has fired, we do not know. But it was 500 metres from Gorakhnath Temple, where the UP Chief Minister was staying."

The 34-year-old brother of Dr Kafeel Khan was immediately rushed to a private nursing home. Dr Khan told the media a bullet was lodged in his brother's neck and he had to arrange for an emergency surgery to get it removed. After the bullet was taken out, Kashif was shifted to the government-run BRD medical college and hospital, where he is under observation for another 48 hours, doctors said.

No motive was found behind the shooting of Dr Khan's brother said police sources.

"Yesterday night I was insisting on a private hospital because I know a prominent neurosurgeon there. But the police kept saying that I must go to the Sadar hospital first and then to the BRD hospital. But it is the doctors at the BRD hospital who sent him back to this private hospital. So crucial time was wasted yesterday night," Dr Khan said.

Kashif is now under observation for another 48 hours at the private nursing home, the doctors said.
