IMPHAL | May 19
Recently suspended JNIMS attendant Ningombam Romesh clarified that he and JNIMS radio diagnosis HOD Dr Hiramoti were not involved in any corruption activity.
Addressing a press meet held today at Manipur Press Club, Imphal Romesh said that he was threaten and forced by JNIMS director L Deben Singh along with seven other unknown persons in the director’s chamber into admitting corrupt practice along with Dr Heramoti.
He said that, “the only way to come out safe from the threatening situation is to agree to their condition, so I admitted that we practice corruption though we did not.”
“The video footage of taking Rs 400 was to pay the TR fee of the patient. The TR fee for taking ultrasound of the whole abdomen is Rs 400. And they gave me asking to pay for them as they did not know the TR counter,” added Romesh.
He added that it seems the director and the HOD has private problem between them, so the director might be using him as his weapon to suspend the HOD.
He further added that he has not practice any corruption and claimed that the allegation is a false.
