ENCOURAGED BY the stringent action taken by KGMU administration against Munnabhais, a self-styled Anti-Munnabhai Front (AMF) has come up to sneak upon more Munnabhais of the past years.

Though members of this front have not revealed their names, yet they have given names of Munnabhai to KGMU administration.

An anonymous letter by the name of AMF was received on Monday, by the Vice Chancellor’s office at KGMU.

The letter named alumni of the KGMU as Munnabhai and even blamed a few of them for running admission racket in the medical colleges of Uttar Pradesh and Haryana.

The letter also mentioned an FIR that was lodged against one of the 1996 batch students for acting as solver in the Punjab PGME exam in 2005.

“We want to inform you about the persons who are associated with KGMU and are involved in running admission rackets in medical colleges. We shall continue to find and send you more names of Munnabhais every month,” said the anonymous letter.

The letter also named a former office-bearer of the Resident Doctors’ Association (RDA) and doctors from the surgery, orthopaedics and paediatric departments for running the admission racket.

The letter named four students from the 1996 batch, one from 1997 batch and one from 1994 batch. The KGMU dean has been asked to investigate into the matter, as some of the names are still associated with KGMU in various departments.

Meanwhile, slapping of NSA upon the arrested surgery department teacher Dr KK Singh has widened the scope of investigation on the campus. The internal enquiry that was focused upon Dr KK Singh has now included two more teachers.

Activities of these teachers, of non-clinical side, have come under scanner of the KGMU administration, in view of their involvement in the admission racket and other bungling on campus. Screening is being done for activities of these teachers for past five years.
