A Scotland Yard spokeswoman also said that a 70-year-old woman was also arrested on 13 January in connection with the death of Mrs. Board.

I am writing with reference to your above article dated 17 Jan 2006 titled "Bail Granted To The Doctor Despite Her Patient's Death". You incorrectly stated that "Dr Dhar was arrested and was charged for manslaughter, malfeasance and depraving the course of justice." This is not the case, Dr Dhar was arrested on suspicion and has not been charged.
