The suspended individual, Dr. Tirtha Dyuti Choudhury, serves as a Reader in the Department of Organon Medicine at the hospital.

According to reports, two female students from the homeopathic medical college came forward with complaints of harassment against Dr. Choudhury. Following these serious allegations, a show cause notice was issued to the doctor, requesting an explanation for his actions. However, despite the opportunity to defend himself, Dr. Choudhury failed to provide any convincing justification for his behavior.

Consequently, in response to the gravity of the situation and the lack of satisfactory explanation from Dr. Choudhury, the Medical education department took swift action by suspending him from his duties with immediate effect. The decision to suspend Dr. Choudhury was made in accordance with the established protocols and regulations governing professional conduct within educational institutions.

A statement from the Medical education department outlined the rationale behind Dr. Choudhury’s suspension, citing “gross misconduct” as the primary reason. The suspension will remain in effect pending further investigation and disciplinary proceedings.
