1.        I am a Govt. employee working as a lecturer in Department of Education and also served Govt. Medical College Srinagar on deputation as a Lecture Biostatistics cum Statistician since Oct. 2004 to Dec. 2009 on the request of then Principal/ Dean G. R. Mir. Being only eligible candidate as per MCI guidelines. I was also awarded letter of appreciation for my excellent work.

2.        I was relieved by the present Principal/ Dean (Dr. Shahida Mir) on 5/09/2009 when I tried to seek some information   under RTI Act. 2009 regarding some mischievous activities and misuse of her official position.

3.        I submitted so many representations to the concerned officials viz  Chief Minister vide No. 899 dated 31/5/2010, Health and Medical Education Minister, dated 26/05/2010, Chief Secretary dated 31/5/2010, and advisor to HCM Mr. Davinder Rana and other officials regarding loss of state exchequer and bungling in GMC, but nothing concrete come to light.

4.        That finally I submitted my compliant to Chief Minster’s Grievance Cell vide complaint No. 14836 dated 16/06/2010 (Pl. see complaint monitoring portal Govt. of Jammu and Kashmir.  www.jkcell.nic.in regarding misuse of official position and travel out side country’s frequently without proper permission along with her husband Dr. Qazi Masood HOD Dermatology, GMC, Srinagar, and other commission of crimes committed by Dr. Shahida Mir during HOD  L.D Gyne. and Obstetrical, including  concealing of information regarding  FIR vide no 68/98/US 304 A,316/34 RPC,P/S Raj Bagh lodged against her  before evaluating as Principal/Dean etc.

(See CM JK Grievance Cell Compliant No. 14836)

6.        That GAD (VIG) vide letter no 81-comp/2011, dated 8/06/2011 to Principal Secretary to Health and Medical Education for immediate necessary action after lapse of two months. The same letter (show cause) was served to Principal/Dean vide no 81-comp/2011, dated 6/06/2011. for immediate reply.

7.        After a short period I submitted so many RTI application to concerned PIO,GMC, seeking information regarding filling of vacant posts/publishing of advertisement to infamous Urdu and English papers namely “Kashmir Aman” and Rehamat of his own violating of Govt Order/ Circular  etc (See JK Grievance Cell nic.in Complaint No. 18889). After receiving RTI applications the concerned Principal/Dean started harassing me and my family by getting me arrested on 28/06/2011  at 2:20 out side Medical College after  approaching  PIO, GMC, Srinagar for seeking information under RTI act as per his letter No AH/PS/PO/11/13-11,dated 31/05/2011.

I won’t under stand why police officials have been torturing me and my family comprised of 2 kids aged 8 and 5 years. On the other hand I am totally engaged with my father’s death who died recently due to kidney failure. The police station Karan Nagar won’t allow me to visit to Baramulla to perform last rites of my father. After   applying to PIO, GMC,   Srinagar for seeking information regarding some bungling in GP Panth Hospital, I also received constant threats from GB Panth Hospital on telephone for the same I have registered FIR in Police Station, Baramulla and aware State information commission in writing.

If the concerned police officials especially SSP Srinagar will not be stop harassing and arrest me I along with my family will start hunger strike till death at the risk of Government.

    after going thru the news ,it seems that nowadays where every body has the right to express his views and live as per the democratic rights, but some people are voilating the laws and misusing their official positions to harass the people and their families.
    these kinds of acts should be condemened and the people who are doing these exercises should be brought to book.government should act firmly to eliminate these kinds of indulgences so that the people and their families are saved. i also appreciate the firm stand taken by Mr. mohd. Afzal bhat, against these kinds of corruption and request all the responsible citizens to take an inspiration so that the society becomes clean from all these malpractices.
