GMC employee booked, suspended for leading rally against corruption
9 months on, Police fail to produce challan
Srinagar, July 24: An employee of the Government Medical College (GMC) Srinagar had to pay dearly for leading a rally against corruption. He was arrested and then suspended.
The warden of the Girls Hostel GMC Gulzar Ahmed Banday had led a rally of the hospital employees against corruption in 2010. “We held a sit-in in the compound of GMC Srinagar.
We were demanding that Government should form a committee to probe the corruption and misrule in the administration in the GMC and its other allied hospitals,” Banday told Greater Kashmir.
“On October 10 2010, Police called me to the office of Superintendent Police South. Without any hesitation, I went there. The SP didn’t turn up and in the meantime a policeman snatched my phone and put me in the lock-up without assigning any reason,” he said. “Following my arrest I was placed under suspension.”
“Police framed frivolous charges against me as I had dared to raise my voice against the corrupt and influential.
I have never pelted a stone in my life nor have I ever been involved in any subversive activities. Till date Police have failed to produce challan in my case,” Banday said.
“For past 9 months,” he said, “I have not been able to meet the expenses of my family. After suspension, I was drawing
only half of my salary. I had taken a loan from the bank and the half salary which gets credited into my account is deducted by the bank as monthly installment towards the dept. After seeing my plight the bank manager paid the fee of my children. Had he not done that my children would have been thrown out from the school.”
“Had I indulged in corruption I would not have taken a bank loan. Everyone is aware about my behavior and conduct. I was victimized for raising
my voice against the injustice and corrupt elements,” he added.
Police had filed FIR No. 26/10 under sections 147, 148, 149, 336, 341, 332, 427 RPC and 13 Unlawful activities against Banday.
When contacted SDPO Shergarhi, Muzaffar Ahmad Shah told Greater Kashmir.
“There are some formalities and after that challan would be produced in the case.”
