New Delhi: A doctors body at AIIMS has urged Health Minister J P Nadda to reinstate two faculties of the institution, who were removed for allegedly misbehaving with and manhandling a patient in 2015.

In a letter to the minister, the Faculty Association of AIIMS (FAAIIMS) said that if the ministry fails to reinstate the two doctors than the members of FAIIMS will go on an indefinite strike against the institution’s administration.

FAAIIMS also questioned the basis on which the inquiry committee was formed and expressed serious concern against the conflict of interest of several members of the inquiry committee.

The AIIMS administration on January 10 terminated two doctors of the medicine department for allegedly misbehaving and manhandling a patient in September last year.

A committee was set up after the incident under department head S K Sharma which earlier this month took the decision to terminate the doctors.
