Contempt of court charges against med college heads

January 13, 2012

The Orissa high court on Monday framed charges against the Director of Medical Education and Training (DMET) and principals of the three government medical colleges of the state, for not complying with the court’s order.

The division bench of Chief Justice V Gopala Gowda and Justice B N Mohapatra found all the four government officials guilty of contempt of court and observed that they violated the order “willfully”. All the four will now face trial that will commence from January 24.

The direction came in response to petitions filed by aspiring medical PG students. They had filed petitions in the high court alleging that many questions in the medical PG entrance examination were wrong and had sought court’s intervention.

Adjudicating the petition, the high court had directed the DMET and principals of the three medical colleges, to award grace marks to the candidates for the wrong questions and to revise the merit list accordingly. But the order was not complied with, so the petitioners moved the court once again and filed contempt petition.

“The high court today framed charges against the DMET and the principals of three government medical college. They will face trial that will start from January 24 for not obeying court’s order,” said G A R Dora, the petitioner’s counsel.
