Kanpur: Around 6 junior resident doctors attached to the GSVM Medical College, who had beaten up PG medicos in an inebriated state on late-night New Year’s Eve; have been expelled from the campus hostel recently.
The Medical College Principal Dr Arti Lalchandani denied it to be a ragging case and has informed TOI that in the written complaint filed by the victim PG Medical students, it was a case of a clash.
Medical Dialogues had recently reported about the violent incident where the junior resident doctors, in a drunken state, went to the Medical College’s Boys Hostel and allegedly dragged the PG medical (MD/MS) students out of their rooms, beat them brutally and push them off the stairs, hurting them severely. Some of the bikes and chairs were also broken by during the incident.
Oppressed, the PG students lodged a complaint with the University Grants Commission’s Anti Ragging Cell, who has sought inquiry report from the district magistrate, SSP and college administration. In addition, the students had shot a written complaint to the Medical College Principal.
The incident happened on New Year’s Eve when the junior residents were partying. In their complaint, the PG medicos had alleged that the drunken doctors from the surgery department were accompanied by 15-20 junior residents who were looking for some students. One by one, they pulled out the students out of their rooms beating them and then threw them down from the stairs. All the students were seriously injured.
The medicos have further added that after the incident, two junior doctors allegedly threatened the medical students over phone stating that they would not let their internship be completed if they complained about this to anyone. Since then the students are terrorized and with their MD/MS exams just around the corner on 6th January, the students are concerned about their studies.
In addition, the medicos have alleged that the resident doctors misbehaved with the female students. They allegedly ask for their mobile numbers forcibly, if resisted, they start humiliating them. When they get their numbers, they allegedly text vulgar messages to female medicos.
Dr GD Yadav, Proctor of GSVM Medical College denied any ragging menace.
According to TOI, the junior doctors had thrashed the PG medical students, enraged over some past dispute with them. Six of the allegedly involved junior doctors were expelled from the hostel with immediate effect.
An eight-member Anti Ragging Committee headed by Head of Pathology Department Dr Mahendra Singh is conducting the inquiry into the incident. A preliminary report of the action taken in this case will be submitted to the government and a detailed report will be given after the inquiry committee submits its report, adds the daily.
