SRINAGAR: Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) has strongly castigated the in-human & illegitimate act of Dr Riyaz Untoo (Principal,SKIMS,Medical College & Hospital,Bemina) wherein he has issued an order directing interns for vacating college hostel. This act is sheer autocratic and has no legal ground to be implemented upon. As per Medical Council of India's clause B.1.6 it's crystal clearly mentioned that "Residential accommodation shall be provided to the interns @100% total number prescribed.

While the interns of other medical colleges in the state are availing hostel facilities comfortably and as per the set norms of MCI it's utterly disgusting & shameful on the part of SKIMS MCH administration to come up with a dictatorial and nefariously designed order for the reasons better known to them. By ordering to vacate the hostels that too in winters SKIMS MCH administration has stooped all time low as it's totally impossible for students to arrange outside lodging.The time which they need to concentrate on studies shall be drastically affected if they are forced to vacate the hostels.

Dr Riyaz Untoo who has been in the news for all negative & tainted reasons is leaving no stone unturned to exploit & torture the medical students. It is pertinent to mention here that a delgation of Interns from SKIMS-MC Bemina met President DAK,  Dr Suhail Naik and General Secretary, Dr Owais H Dar yesterday and requested them to intervene in this grave issue wherein the career of new doctors (interns) is at stake.

DAK stresses Principal Secretary Health & Medical Education, Shri Atal Dullo not to behave as a mute spectator and take suo moto cognizance of this unethical episode immediately. DAK therefore appeals His Excellency Governor of J&K,  Shri Satya Pal Malik and Hon'ble Advisor , Shri K Vijay Kumar to kindly intervene in the matter & take strict action against the principal for issuing such inhuman order and revoke the said order immediately.
