Dental council chief in trouble as univ nixes his membership

NEW DELHI: The election of Dr Dibyendu Mazumdar, president of the Dental Council of India, to the council has been "withdrawn" and "cancelled" by Nilamber-Pitamber University (NPU), which he represented on the council. With his council membership itself being terminated by the university, his appointment as president too is untenable, pointed out those who had filed cases challenging the legality of his appointment in the Delhi high court and the Kerala high court.

According to a memo issued by NPU registrar on September 1, the appointment of Mazumdar as a visiting professor of Vananchal Dental College and Hospital (VDCH) in Garhwa, Jharkhand, which is affiliated to NPU, and his subsequent election to DCI was made "in gross violation of relevant statutory provisions as contained in the Jharkhand State Universities Act 2000 and the Dentist Act, 1948".

On receiving a copy of the petition filed in the Kerala HC challenging his appointment to the college, the university re-examined the issue and discovered irregularities in his appointment and subsequent election to DCI, the memo said. The university issued a show cause notice to Mazumdar on June 22 asking why his appointment should not be cancelled and his subsequent election to DCI annul led. After examining his response, the university decided to reject it saying he had not addressed the issues raised.

The university terminated his appointment as visiting faculty at the Vananchal Dental College and also withdrew and cancelled his election "from the non-existing faculty of dentistry in NPU". The university order was to come into force with immediate effect.

The university authorities say they have informed the union health ministry and DCI, but neither appears to have acted on it. The DCI website still shows Mazumdar as the president.Earlier this year, responding to queries from the ministry on the eligibility of Mazumdar's membership in DCI, the West Bengal government, of which Mazumdar is an employee, wrote that he had not obtained permission from the state government before accepting an honorary teaching designation in NPU.

MCI Debars Seven Doctors From Andhra Pradesh And Telangana

The Medical Council of India (MCI) has debarred three Telangana and four Andhra Pradesh doctors from teaching for five years after their names were found in a 'ghost' medical faculty list in a Puducherry-based private medical institute. In fact, the seven are part of a bigger medical faculty racket unearthed at Puducherry's Vinayaka Mission's Medical College & Hospital by the Chennai anti-corruption branch of CBI. As many as 131 private doctors are allegedly involved in the racket.

Those debarred by MCI include three practicing private doctors from Hyderabad—G Vahini from Jubilee Hills, Md Jamaluddin Qadri from Mozzam Jahi Market and Md Iqbal from Shantinagar. Those from AP are P Srinivas Prasad from Tenali (Guntur), K Gopi Krishan from New Military Colony (Nellore), Y Tanuja of Dargammitta (Nellore) and Ramanathan from TSN Colony (Visakhapatnam). The MCI disciplinary committee has asked its state counterpart, AP State Medical Council (APSMC), to implement the punishment.

"They will remain suspended for three months from practice besides being banned for five years from taking up faculty job in any medical college in India. We will be issuing them formal orders towards this effect shortly," said an ethics committee member of APSMC. In the course of the hearing conducted by MCI's ethics committee on five different occasions from May to September, 2014, sources said that the seven doctors did not appear to plead their cases.

Explaining the case against the doctors, Dr K Ramesh Reddy, MCI member from Telangana, said that they had entered into a conspiracy with the errant private medical college when MCI's inspection team visited the college by falsely declaring that they were full-time faculty members.

"In return for money, they hoodwinked the MCI's annual inspection team into believing that they are full-time faculty members in the Puducherry college. But in reality, they were never there at all. This is just the tip of the iceberg as ghost faculty is a reality in more than 50% of private medical colleges in the country," he said.

While lamenting that such unethical practices are a blot on the medical profession, Reddy said that the MCI has directed all medical colleges in the country to introduce the radio frequency identification (RFID) system to track the movement of faculty members. During investigation, the CBI found that their names neither figured in the attendance register nor in the monthly salary statement maintained at that time for the regular staff. For appearing before the MCI's inspection team in the medical college, the CBI team revealed in the report that they were paid cash vouchers.

Not surprisingly, insiders in the APSMC ethics committee believe that the practice is rampant in majority of the 36-odd private medical colleges in the two states, including 15 in Telangana, but for want of a fool-proof mechanism, the MCI inspection teams visiting these colleges annually are not able to detect them.

Even in the 17 government medical colleges in the two states, sources said that the governments take MCI inspection teams for a ride by resorting to dubious methods to project faculty numbers - whether it is in the form of transferring faculty members from one college to another just before the inspection or showing junior doctors as faculty. Incidentally, under the MCI Act, all medical colleges are mandated to recruit only full-time faculty members or risk getting their admissions cancelled for two years.

Hitech solution by MCI to tackle ghost faculty

For busting ghost teachers at private medical colleges, the Medical Council of India (MCI) has come out with a hi-tech solution.

Last week, Punjab Medical Council (PMC) found more than 400 ghost teachers in four private medical colleges in Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh. Sources in the MCI now say it is planning to implement biometric radio frequency identification system for tracking and monitoring the teachers.

A circular issued to all medical colleges says that the MCI will install radio trackers on all these campuses and upload the correct employee list after two levels of verification by a project coordinator whom the college concerned will appoint. In case fraudulent information is submitted, the college will be accountable.

The devices will be connected to the MCI through the internet, so that the monitoring happens daily. For fingerprint authentication, the teachers’ database will be Aadhaar-linked. Two years ago, Dr KK Talwar as head of the MCI board of governors, had introduced a similar system that was, later, abandoned.

Welcoming the move, PMC president Dr GS Grewal said it would “make a lot of difference”. “But the biometric data should be stored in the presence of senior functionaries of the MCI, state council, local medical university, and state’s medical education department,” he said, adding that doctors should be registered only with the medical council of the state where they worked.

How it will work

The Medical Council of India will install biometric radio trackers on campuses after preparing a correct employee list based on verification by a college-appointed coordinator. For false information, the college will be accountable. The devices will be networked online for daily monitoring. For fingerprint authentication, the teachers’ database will be Aadhaar-linked.

KEM expert helps cops nail criminal using dental forensics; first such case in Maharashtra.

A forensic odontologist from KEM Hospital, the only such expert in Maharashtra, has helped the state procure a life term for a rapist and murderer by matching bite marks found on his 14-year-old victim's body to the 34-year-old man's dental profile. According to A R Kotikhane, the public prosecutor who tried the case, this is the first instance of a forensic odontology being employed to obtain a conviction in a Maharashtra court. 

The Parbhani police, tasked with investigating the case, lacked sufficient forensic evidence to link the perpetrator, Irfan Afroz Sannulla Farroque, to the crime, which he committed in October. All they had to go on was a set of bite marks discovered on the body of the girl, an orphan, who had been violated sexually and strangled to death. 

Dr. Hemalata Pandey (top) matched the accused man Farroque’s dental profile (above) to bite marks found on the 14-year-old victim’s body

Dr. Hemalata Pandey, the odontologist who performed the procedure, was able to prove that the bite marks found on the girl's body were caused by Farroque.

The POCSO court hearing the case held that Dr. Pandey's work afforded sufficient cause to convict the accused. Judge Y G Chaware, in his order, noted that, "The evidence of the prosecution is consistent and sufficient to prove that the accused has committed rape on [the] deceased [girl] and [has] also murdered her."

According to the police, the victim lived with her elder sister, who worked as a housemaid in Parbhani. In October, the sister returned home to find the 14-year-old girl unconscious, and naked. The young girl was declared dead at a government hospital in the neighbourhood.

Her sister told investigators that Farroque had been seen in the vicinity in the past and was known to stalk the girl.

The police detained him as a suspect, collected a sample of his blood and dispatched it to Kalina. Investigators were told results would only be ready in ten months' time. The police turned to Dr. Pandey for help. The odontologist examined photographs of the girl's body and obtained impressions of Farroque's teeth. She was able to establish that the 12 bite marks on the victim's person matched the accused man's dental profile.

According to the police, this is only the second instance that a forensic odontologist's expertise was sought in prosecuting a murder and rape case - the first being the 2013 Nirbhaya trial in Delhi.
