New Delhi, May 11, 2017: The Delhi high court on Tuesday inquired to know if Indian-origin doctors which are suspended from practicing by a foreign country, can be forbidden from treating patients in India.

A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice V K Rao raised the doubt while taking note of a news report that an Indian-origin doctor, barred from practising by a US court is now treating patients in the National Capital Region (NCR).

The court recorded that the report had declared that mechanisms administering medical practice in India were ill-equipped to identify such cases which permitted such doctors to practice in India. It designated the member secretary of Delhi State Legal Services Authority, Sanjeev Jain, to verify the name and address of this doctor, carry out an immediate scrutiny and file a report within four days, mentioned TNN report.

Besides this, the court also issued a notice to the Medical Council of India asking it to file a report on the mechanism, the statutory regime as well as rules and regulations in place to examine and curb down such practices.
The bench further sought the acknowledgement of the ministry of health and family welfare before the next date of hearing on May 15.

Though, he continues to run a clinic each in Delhi and Gurgaon.

India has rejected Pakistan Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua’s claims denying her country’s links to the Pulwama terror attack, saying that JeM, which claimed responsibility for the attack on Thursday, is based in Pakistan, and the “links are clear and evident and for all to see”.

The External Affairs Ministry spokesperson on Friday termed as “preposterous” the demand for an investigation, saying there is a video of the suicide bomber declaring himself a member of the terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM).

The spokesperson said India has not seen any constructive approach from Pakistan on bilateral relations and it has been sheltering terrorists and terror organisations such as JeM. He said Islamabad has not taken any action against such groups despite international demands.

India also demanded that Pakistan take immediate and verifiable action against terrorists and terror groups operating from territories under its control to create a conducive atmosphere in the region free of terror.

The spokesperson’s response came over Pakistan Foreign Secretary’s briefing rejecting Pakistan’s involvement in the terror attack on a paramilitary convoy in Jammu and Kashmir that killed at least 45 troopers. Janjua met envoys of P-5 countries late on Friday.

The spokesperson said JeM has claimed responsibility for the attack.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement that the attack was a matter of “grave concern” and it had been condemning “heightened acts of violence in the (Kashmir) Valley”. Pixabay

“The organisation and its leadership are located in Pakistan. LeT and other terror groups have welcomed the news of the attack. These groups are also based in Pakistan. Pakistan cannot claim that it is unaware of their presence and their activities.

“They have not taken any action against these groups despite international demands, especially against groups and individuals proscribed by the UN and other countries. The links to Pakistan are clear and evident for all to see. Its own Ministers have shared the same podium with UN proscribed terrorists,” the spokesperson said.

He said there was audio-visual material linking JeM to the terror attack.

“The demand for an investigation is preposterous when there is a video of the suicide bomber declaring himself a member of the JeM. There are also other audio-visual and print material linking JeM to the terrorist attack. We have therefore no doubt that the claim is firmly established,” the spokesperson said.

He said while there are claims to offer dialogue from Pakistan, it continues to shelter terror outfits.

“We have not seen any constructive approach from Pakistan on relations with India. What we have noticed however, are claims to offer dialogue on the one hand, while sponsoring and sheltering terrorists and terrorist organisations such as JeM on the other,” the spokesperson added. (IANS)
