FIR against 7 MBBS medicos for Mass Ragging at Saifai Medical college

Etawah: Soon after the Medical Council of India (MCI) cracked its whip on UP’s Rural Institute of Medical Sciences, threatening Rs 1.5 crore fine and/or debarment over its inaction on mass ragging at the campus, the Saifai Medical University barred seven MBBS students from classes and lodged an FIR against them over mass ragging at the institute,

The Board of Governors in Supersession of Medical Council of India (MCI BoG) had asked why the senior batches admitted to MBBS course in the varsity be not suspended from attending classes for a minimum period of one month.

Why the institute be not declared as an erring medical college and be declared as ineligible for preferring any application under Section 10 (A) of the Indian Medical Council Act 1956 for a minimum period of one year extendable by such quantum by the Council as would be commensurate with the wrong,” the show cause notice sent by the MCI to the varsity read.

“Why exemplary fine of Rs 1 Lakh for each incident of ragging, that of 150X1 Lakh, that is equal to Rs 150 Lakhs be not imposed upon the institute,” it asked.

Soon after the MCI notice, the university on Friday said an FIR has been lodged against seven students and a fine of Rs 25,000 imposed on them over the recent case of ragging.

They have also been barred from classes and the hostel for the next three months.

Two hostel wardens who failed to bring the incident to the notice of the university administration have been suspended and the services of two guards terminated, Medical faculty head Prof P K Jain told reporters.

A collective fine of Rs 5,000 has also been imposed on the 2018 batch of students, he added.

Jain said the inquiry committee set up by the hospital administration and the police was told in writing by the 160-member new batch that there had been no incident of ragging.

This report was given to vice chancellor on Thursday, he said. But since the matter also came before the media, he and Vice Chancellor Raj Kumar individually contacted students in the batch to find out the exact situation, Jain claimed.

The names of the seven senior students then emerged.

A video clip had shown students in white coats walking in a single file, bowing their tonsured heads and also making ‘salaam’ gestures. Another clip showed them walking in rows on the campus.

On Wednesday, even while promising “strict action” over the ragging, the vice chancellor had initially appeared to condone “mild” cases of this kind.

He said ragging at one time used to be a way of inculcating “sanskar” (tradition or manners) of the world of medicine among students. The VC was soon summoned by the UP CM who expressed severe displeasure over the entire fiasco
