Amritsar, October 5

The police are likely to assign the probe into the fraud case, registered against 14 doctors and others, to a special investigation team (SIT), led by an IPS officer.

Police Commissioner Sukhchain Singh Gill said the case was registered following a preliminary inquiry by the Station Commander, Amritsar Cantonment. Assuring a thorough probe into the matter, Gill said he was yet to go through the case file.

Meanwhile, the Indian Medical Association (IMA) has condemned the registration of the FIR against doctors and hospitals for allegedly committing fraud in the Ex-servicemen Contributory Health Scheme (ECHS) meant for Army veterans. The IMA observed that the FIR was registered unilaterally and statements of doctors had not been recorded till now.

"We have looked into the matter and observed that the complaint is totally unilateral and biased," said the IMA, Amritsar, in a statement today. Dr Kuldeep Singh Arora, state president, along with Dr Amrita Rana, honorary secretary, and Dr Sukhjit Singh, IMA chairman, pointed out that the doctors were not given an opportunity to present their viewpoint.

Condemning the FIR, the IMA requested the authorities to conduct an impartial probe into the matter. The police had booked 24 persons, including 14 doctors and Army veterans, for misappropriation of funds released under the ECHS. — TNS
