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.
