Nat’l Anti-Ragging Helpline asks KGMU to review complaint
LUCKNOW: The National Anti-ragging Helpline has asked King George’s Medical University’s anti-ragging committee to re-investigate the complaint filed by a junior doctor last year after the KGMU anti-ragging committee had found ragging allegations made by a junior doctor as baseless.
The complainant, a resident doctor in the first year of resident-ship, had filed a complaint on November 30 with the chief proctor office via email following which the chief proctor had constituted a committee on December 4, 2017 and held its meeting on December 12.
The complainant had alleged that the junior doctors were abused verbally by seniors, and were asked to do excessive work. In the complaint it was also stated that seniors even made objectionable gestures and abused the juniors without any reason. The complaint had also mentioned dates about when all these incidents happened.
The committee constituted on December 4 that comprised Prof Vinita Das, Prof UB Mishra and Prof Anoop Verma, filed the final report on December 23 and mentioned that the charges were incorrect. Thereafter, the complainant was also asked to submit an apology letter for making such a charge. The complainant then moved the National AntiRagging
Helpline where a committee reviewed his complaint and the report from KGMU. This committee said the report filed by KGMU needs review.
“I have not seen the letter from the central anti-ragging committee as yet but if there are instructions to conduct the probe again, we will follow the orders,” said the KGMU spokesperson Prof NS Verma.
