Kukshi (Dhar district, Madhya Pradesh): The government has ordered action against Adityaraj Nursing College, which functions only on papers. An FIR was lodged against the college directors on Monday at police station following orders of state government.
Along with this, notice has been issued to former Chief Medical and Health Officer for issuing necessary permits though the required parameters for nursing college were not fulfilled. The present CMHO Dr Jitendra Choudhary was asked to lodge complaint with police.
The investigation into the case was carried out by team constituted by collector Alok Kumar Singh. In this case, the vice principal of Indore Nursing College Krishna Pillai was earlier suspended by Indore divisional commissioner Pawan Sharma for being negligent in submitting the investigation report and saving Adityaraj College by giving it a clean chit. After this, the government issued orders for further action.
Explanation was sought from former CMHO Dr RC Panika in this matter as the rules for giving necessary permits were not taken into account. Collector Singh said notice has been issued to Dr Panika.
The team constituted by collector found several irregularities during the investigation. The permission was taken in the name of hospital and research centre but no health activities and research were being conducted at the given address. The 37 beds found in the building were out of use. No health care equipment was found either in the hospital building.
