DESPITE PROTESTS by a member, the KGMU Executive Council today gave its approval to charges framed against suspended faculty member Dr KK Singh and another junior doctor, RK Gupta.

In the emergency meeting, the EC members upheld the finding of the disciplinary committee that stated that Dr Singh was at fault for not performing as a faculty member, while Gupta gave fake documents to undertake the MBBS course at KGMU.

Both Dr Singh and Gupta have been given two week’s time to reply to the charges framed against them, failing which, a process to expel them from the varsity would begin.

In the chargesheet against Dr Singh, it has been stated that his experience shown at the Dharbanga Medical College seems overlapping with his services at another place. More so, Dr Singh is facing charges for being a non-performer both as a faculty member and doctor. The records show he did not perform any surgery in the last couple of years. Gupta has been demanded a reply against the fake certificates of high school that he submitted to KGMU, while taking admission in MBBS course back in 1993. All this happened in the meeting when a member Dr SN Kureel objected to the way meeting was called. Dr Kureel did not attend the meeting.

Meanwhile, five MBBS students were suspended for their involvement in nefarious activities on the campus. Mukesh Kumar, Rajkishore Rajput, Surendra Singh, Sunit Kaushik and P Tyagi (all 2002 batch) were found guilty of their involvement in the arson that took place on campus on January 12.
