BHOPAL: The number of homeopaths, who managed to get jobs in the Government Homoeopathic Medical College and Hospital, Bhopal on the basis of forged documents may go up, claimed the man who blew the lid off the scam.
The police on Friday have registered an FIR against 8 homoeopaths, including 5 woman doctors for submitting forged documents for securing appointment.
The forgery in government homoeopathic college surfaced in response to an RTI application filed by Gwalior-based homeopath Dr P Kumar Pippal.
Police said accused, Rajiv, Santosh, Hemant, Pooja, Babita, Gyanesh, Amba Singh and Linsi were appointed between 2001 and 2006. They have been working as lecturers and readers in the college and hospital all these years.
Dr Pippal, the whistle-blower gave the police relevant documents to substantiate his allegations homoeopaths produced fake certificates to get appointments in government homoeopathic college.
Dr Pippali alleged that the number of homeopaths that managed appointment by producing fake certificates would further go up and he is in the process to get documents that would bring under scanner a few more appointments. “The police are looking into the matter and any action against the accused would be taken either by the police or by the government. The accused would continue to serve till then,” Principal of the college, SK Mishra told TOI.
