Tainted AIIMS doc’s plea for voluntary retirement rejected

New Delhi: The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) has rejected the request for voluntarily retirement made by Dr KK Roy, professor of obstetrics and gynecology in AIIMS after a preliminary inquiry against him found merit in the allegations that he had taken money from a patient’s father for conducting a surgery. According to sources, Dr Roy had applied for retirement just a week after the complaint was filed against him. He is due to retire next year. Though he has been shifted out of his department to National Cancer Institute in Jhajjar after a fact-finding committee found merit in the allegations made against him, he has not been assigned any work there, said sources.

According to the preliminary inquiry report, the patient/attendant was allegedly asked to pay money for procurement of supplies by Dr Roy, who allegedly introduced them to a supplier in his room. The patient’s father allegedly paid cash to the supplier but no receipt or supplies were provided to them as the supplier said that he would provide necessary supplies to the doctor directly. The patient and her attendant had allegedly paid Rs 30,000 initially to the vendor and later, they allegedly paid another Rs 4,000 to the doctor, it stated.
