THE POLICE have requested the KGMU administration to provide the details of internal inquiry that were conducted against the suspended faculty member Dr KK Singh.
Dr Singh has been suspended for his alleged involvement in arson that took place on January 12 at KGMU. The police are also investigating the same incident.
Meanwhile, the name of junior resident Dr RK Gupta, who was also arrested in connection with the same arson, is now being connected with the admission racket in the Diploma in Pharmacy (DIP) course.
The DIP course was started in the Department of Pharmacology in 1998 but it had to be closed as a lot of bungling was reported in the admission process.
A vigilance inquiry was also set up to probe the racket.
The present inquiry being done by the police in connection with the arson has got clues that Dr Gupta could be one of the masterminds in that DIP admission racket, where several candidates with poor marks were given admission by changing their caste or by increasing their numbers by tampering of records.
Meanwhile, the KGMU administration today opened the administrative office to collect details of 45 students who are suspected of provoking and indulging in nefarious activities on the KGMU campus.
It was earlier decided that a meeting would be conducted on Sunday to decide further course of action against the suspected students. As the vice-chancellor and the registrar did not turn up, the meeting was cancelled.
The proctorial board also visited the SP hostel today to take a note of the repair works going there, as the board has to allot these rooms to the 2002 batch students on January 31.
