KATHMANDU, September 6: The controversially stranded Kathmandu National Medical College premises were found empty upon arrival of the inspection committee at 7:45 AM this morning. The members of the committee stated to not find any authorized personnel to leave the official letters.
Neither a single doctor nor a single patient was found at supposedly operational medical college which was sanctioned affiliation and then temporarily suspended by Tribhuvan University in recent weeks. The Ghattekulo based college had only a few nurses at the helms as the inspection team returned back after waiting for more than one hour.
The members of inspection committee Parshuram Koirala, Sanad Devkota and Dr Prashanna Bhatt are expected to submit their final report today.
The university had granted affiliation to the college during Dr KC's 11th hunger strike although the hospital is said to lack the proper infrastructure, denouncing the cabinet decision and the decision of the Educational Council of Institute of Medicine (IOM) in 2013.
