Prescribing medicines without diagnosis amounts to culpable negligence, says Bombay High Court

According to the police, the woman was admitted to the accused couple's hospital in Ratnagiri in February this year where she underwent caesarean operation and gave birth to a baby.
The accused couple, in their pleas, argued that they could not be charged with culpable homicide not amounting to murder and should, at the most, be booked under section 304 (A) (causing death due to negligence).
The high court, however, said that in the present case, the applicants took the risk of doing something with recklessness and indifference to the consequences.
