Kalaburagi: Turning over new leaf - After 14 years in jail, murder convict becomes doctor


Daijiworld Media Network - Kalaburagi

Kalaburagi, Feb 15: A man who was convicted of murder and jailed for 14 years has gone on to become a doctor after completing MBBS degree.

Dr Subhash Tukaram Patil from Bhosaga village in Afzalpur taluk here has proved that it is never too late to turn over a new leaf and start life afresh.

When pursuing MBBS degree course in a college at Bengaluru, Subhash was attracted towards Padmavati, wife of an excise contractor named Ashok Guthedar from Mahalaxmi Layout there. Patil was residing at Mahalaxmi Layout close to the house of Guthedar. Guthedar, who found out about his wife's affair with Patil, threatened Patil of murder. Patil was so enamored by the lady that with her support, he gunned down Ashok Guthedar in the year 2002. He was awarded life imprisonment for this crime and spent the jail term in prisons at Parappana Agrahara Bengaluru and the district central prison here.

While in prison, Patil used to assist doctors at the central prison hospital. He said that the health department had honoured him in 2008 for his contribution in the treatment of prisoners suffering from tuberculosis.

Subhash was in the second year of MBBS degree course when he committed the murder. He came out of jail on August 15, 2016 after completing his jail term. He then obtained permission from Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences and appeared for the third and fourth year MBBS examinations in 2017 and 2018 and passed the degree in February 2019. He then completed his internship of one year at Basaveshwara Teaching and General Hospital here. He is scheduled to receive his certificate on Saturday February 15. He has obtained his medical degree from Mahadevappa Rampure Medical College run by Hyderabad Karnataka Education Society.

Patil who gunned down the excise contractor in on June 1 5, 2002, did not lose hopes even after being awarded life imprisonment for his crime. Padmavati, for whom he committed this crime, also was awarded life imprisonment. Both were released from jail on the Independence Day, 2016, having got concession in jail terms based on good conduct.

Dr Subhash Patil had obtained MA in journalism from Karnataka State Open University when in jail. He says that his jail term taught him invaluable lessons of life. He said that he took care not to lose patience when inside the jail and read various books most of the time. He says he has decided to open a clinic and provide free medical service to relatives of prisoners and soldiers.

Dr Subhash Patil stands out as a testimony to prove that imprisonment is not the end of life for people who get jailed mostly because of their momentary feeling of anger or revenge, and they can still nurse the hopes of living their dream and succeeding in it. Urge to live the dream and waiting for that opportunity patiently can help them to live the remaining life to the fullest.

    Integrity is key for medical profession. Not sure how the medical board would give someone a license with criminal record. He falls in love with a patient’s wife. He can legally murder them. While it’s a feel good story, he is unfit to be a Doctor.

    Nice story. It is good to see that Subhash Patil, the so called criminal who committed a grave crime that of killing a person, and served the long jail term, is now in the process of obtaining a MBBS degree. Sometimes, a person deserves a second chance in life, and in my opinion, Subhash Patil really does. Wish you well Dr. Patil in your rehabilitation, and your future practice.

    What is his advice to young men who fall into the trap of loving women that are eager to push the hubby off the cliff?

    Has he learnt anything? Or, does he still think it was all love?

    Just curious.

    Criminals and criminal minded are intelligent in many otherways,
    because of that our leading and largest political party in the world
    does not hesitate to adopt them and give ministership in their party at any cost
    we have lot examples, and people ready to elect them in good majority.

    Becoming Doctor to treat patients is a noble profession.
    But in recent times, we have seen eminent doctors changing their profession.
    Eminent amongst them are Datta Samant, KP Bhat and Praveen Togadia.

    Many of the comments suggests the mentality: crimes as heinous as murder also will be ignored by the society if the criminal is intelligent in obtaining marks. This is our society today. Just marks and English.

    There is an urgent need to change our education system.

    Humans commit crime's, out of hate, desire for power, wealth and lastly to satisfy the flesh !!! This man blindly submitted himself to the flesh.... 14 years RI, in Indian jails, is certainly not heaven on Earth !!! Any other inmate, would have certainly lost his mental balance. He atoned for his crime n completed his MBBS studies. Well done !!

    If he had not killed Guthedar, for his wife. I am sure Guthedar would have been his SURGEON to treat this doctor. Unfortunately he is no more.

    but the activities of this doctor needs to be monitored as he has already tasted blood.

    He may use his skills and previous experience of killing to manhandle the patients in a soft manner.
