Doctor/Fugitive from Great Britain Arrested in Lufkin

  

Dr. Priya Ramnath an anesthesiologist at Woodland Heights Hospital in Lufkin was arrested at the hospital at approximately 9:15 a.m. this morning by the Joint East Texas Fugitive Task Force and members of the Lufkin Police Department. 

Dr. Ramnath was arrested without incident on a Warrant from Great Britain; the Warrant charges Dr. Ramnath with Manslaughter - Contrary to Common Law.  The charges state that Dr. Ramnath was allegedly responsible for the death of a patient while practicing medicine in Great Britain. 

Dr. Ramnath apparently left Great Britain in 1998 and was in the United States on a Work Visa.  Dr. Ramnath is a citizen of India by birth and was in the Lufkin area for approximately six months.  It is believed that prior to being in Lufkin Dr. Ramnath lived in the McAllen area. 

The U.S. Marshals Service carries primary jurisdiction for fugitives sought by foreign countries.  Annually, investigations carried out by the U.S. Marshals result in the apprehension of approximately 34,000 federal fugitives. More federal fugitives are arrested by Marshals than all other federal agencies combined.

The Joint East Texas Fugitive Task Force is sponsored by the U.S. Marshals Service and is comprised of law enforcement officers from 56 law enforcement agencies in the East Texas area. The task force objective is to seek out and arrest federal, state, and local fugitives, mainly those with violent criminal histories to include sex offenders. Last year, U.S. Marshals task forces arrested more than 27,000 state and local fugitives on felony charges.
