Dr. M. A. Saif, who is charged in the suicide case of PG student Dr. Preethi, 26, at Kakatiya Medical college, had his suspension lifted by the telangana high court, but the college would not permit him to continue his studies. Preethi, a postgraduate student in her first year, committed herself in february of this year. The top court deemed Dr. Saif's suspension "illegal" on september 11. Saif was unable to enrol in studies at Kakatiya Medical college (KMC), which is located in the warangal district.
According to Dr. Saif's attorney srikanth Chintala, a contempt of court suit was subsequently brought before the high court on september 25 against principal Dr. Divvela Mohandas. On october 6, the hearing will take place. According to Chintala, the college's principal defied the high court's decision.
"Dr. Saif was denied admission to the college on september 13 by Dr. Divvela Mohandas, who claimed that they had not yet gotten a copy of the court decision. Dr. Saif returned to the institution on september 20; this time, he brought a softcopy of the order. The duplicate did not have a stamp or the judge's signature, therefore the principal refused to let him, Chintala added.
There is usually a delay in getting the initial court order, according to Chintala, who noted that this is due to the judges having a large caseload. After the high court instructed government employees and subordinate courts to confirm if an order was published to the telangana high court's website, the procedure became trouble-free. It is considered to be certified if the order was accessible, he added, adding that even if it lacks the necessary stamp or signature, it is still legitimate.
College orders fresh enquiry
The college administration informed Dr. Saif on Tuesday, september 26, that a re-enquiry would be performed and that he had three days to answer. There is definitely foul play going on. According to Chintala, the contempt of court hearing will take place on october 6.
