Pampore: The authorities on Saturday deducted one-day salary of eight doctors and 14 paramedics at Sub-district Hospital after they were found absent from their duties.
The action was taken after the MLA Pampore, Mir Zahoor Ahmad, paid a surprise visit to the SDH and found the medicos absent from their duties.
“From past many days, people came to me complaining that the medicos remain absent. Today, I myself found these doctors and paramedics absent,” Mir told Kashmir Reader.
He said that after finding the staff members absent, he seized the attendance register and sent it to assistant commissioner Revenue, Sajad Ahmad Qadri for further action.
Meanwhile, Qadri confirmed that he received the attendance register from the concerned MLA. “For now, we have deducted one-day salary of these employees and sought an explanation from them.”
He said that he has referred the case to the concerned Block Medical Officer (BMO) for further action.
