Cancer hospital mystery
HoD, radiology, and the nurse in–charge at GCRI have been placed under suspension. But nobody is saying why

Two senior staff members of Gujarat Cancer Research Institute (GCRI), Kirti Goswami and Krishna, were suspended three months ago. The details of their suspension, however, remain wrapped in mystery. Not a single official of the institute is ready to reveal the reason behind their exclusion.

Both Goswami and Krishna, against whom an inquiry has been started, are with GCRI’s radiology department. Goswami is the head of department, whereas Krishna is the in–charge nurse.

There are rumours that they have been placed under suspension for misbehaviour. Sources at GCRI, however, claim the two were temporarily removed after disappearance of some expensive equipment and medicines from their department.

When Mirror contacted the deputy director of the cancer institute, Kirti Patel, he refused to comment. “An inquiry is on, so I cannot comment,” he said. GCRI’s administrative officer, Rajendra Rajput, also declined to share details about Goswami and Krishna’s suspension.

Goswami, meanwhile, claimed that the inquiry against him and the suspended incharge sister had concluded. “The inquiry ended more than a month ago, but I have not received a copy of the report yet,” he said. On why he has been temporarily barred from working, he said: “You should ask GCRI director Pankaj Shah.”

Mirror spoke to Shah, but he declined to divulge any details. The sources said that only a few people knew the real reason behind the two GCRI staff members’ exclusion.

“Even the staff of radiology department doesn’t know. The issue is being kept under wraps,” they said.

Contradictions abound
  1. There are rumours that Goswami and Krishna have been suspended for misbehaviour. Sources at GCRI, however, say the two were placed under suspension in December last year after disappearance of some expensive equipment and medicines from their department.
  2. GCRI officials, including the director, say an inquiry against Goswami and Krishna is on. Goswami, however, claims the inquiry ended more than a month ago.
