Dr RC Siwach, senior professor and head of the department of orthopaedics at Rohtak PGIMS, has served a legal notice to the authorities of the institute as well as Pt Bhagwat Dayal Sharma University of Health Sciences (UHS), Rohtak.

The professor was later allowed to resume clinical work, his headship and administrative powers were taken away. He got a clean-chit in a regular inquiry conducted by retired District and Sessions Judge RP Bhasin, following which he was reinstated as the head of the department. In the legal notice sent, the professor has maintained that his reputation had been tarnished and if the authorities concerned do not tender an apology within 15 days, a defamation suit for damages of Rs 5 crore may be filed against them. UHS VC said the notice would be appropriately responded to. — TNS
