AIIMS: Resident Doctors Protest over Senior Professor’s Reinstatement

New Delhi:  A section of resident doctors at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) held a protest over the reinstatement of a senior professor, who was accused of allegedly assaulting one of their colleagues in April.

The alleged assault had triggered a three-day strike by the resident doctors at the premier hospital, thus curtailing the medical services.

The protestors demanded the senior doctor’s suspension and asked the authorities to share the internal committee’s report on the basis of which he was reinstated.

“We have asked the AIIMS administration to give us the report of the committee which inquired into the incident,” a resident doctor said.

The strike, in April, was called off after the director appealed to the resident doctors to resume work. The senior doctor concerned had to tender a written apology and was asked to proceed on leave on the directions of an internal probe panel.

    Inquiry report should be in public domain.
    Reinstatement of the belligerent Prof must be in consultation with resident doctors association.

  2. What sort of hypocrisy is this…. Should be appointed in consultation with junior doctors….

    Committee has done its job, move on , professor has tendered a apology…. If still has a problem, go to court….

    Stop resorting to strikes on petty reasons.. its the patients who suffers and doctors whose image is further tarnished in society…

    And please, can you swear that these today\’s generation passed outs have absolute ethical and moral values…

    Shouldn\’t have physically abused, but if junior doctor has done wrong, will have to discipline him or her as lives are at stake …

    ….. No repeated strikes on such issues please….. Strike had already happened… Lets move on…
