Immediate suspension of the registration of the three accused doctors, (Dr. Ankita Khandelwal, Dr.Bhakti Mehere and Hema Ahuja ) in Payal Tadavi Case
The three doctors , Dr. Bhakti Mehare, Dr. Ankita Khandelwal and Dr. Hema Ahuja are accused in the Dr. Payal Tadvi case for abetting suicide of Dr. Payal, caste atrocities and ragging against Dr. Payal. They were in custody for long time and have got bail only on stringent conditions laid by Honourable Bombay High Court. One such condition was their suspension of registration in MMC. But later on the Court directed that the matter of suspension of registration is within the domain of MMC and hence such decision was left to the MMC.
But since that time and even after the official complaint to MMC registered by Mrs. Abeda Tadvi ( Dr. Payal’s mother ) , MMC didn’t bother to initiate any enquiry against the three accused doctors. Furthurmore you have ex - parte revoked the suspension of registration citing the high court’s direction. This is very shocking that instead of proceeding for the immediate enquiry and convicting the accused accordingly , you revoked the suspension. You neither heard to the complainant nor you have shown decency in informing your order to the complainant.
It is a matter of great concern that the MMC has disregarded the heinous crime conducted by the accused doctors. They have been accused of torturing and humiliating Dr. Payal for her Scheduled Tribe background and severe ragging of her which led finally to the suicide of Dr. Payal. As per media reports , in Dr. Payal’s case the serious offences of caste atrocities are part of the charge sheet by the police and also form part of the Anti-ragging committee report submitted to the Maharashtra University of Health Sciences ( MUHS).You must seriously note that Honourable Bombay High Court had denied the accused doctors to enter in the Topiwala Medical College campus because of their serious criminal acts in the campus.
Such criminal conduct by the accused is a serious blot on the medical profession. As MMC you are supposed to take serious note and action against such offenders in the medical profession. But unfortunately you have undermined your responsibility and you have done grave injustice to Dr. Payal.
On this backdrop , we very strongly demand that MMC should suspend the registration of the three accused doctors and they must not be allowed to practice the medical profession and pursue post graduation in any of the medical college in the country.
