A strike by the students of Government Dental College and Hospital (GDCH) Srinagar entered the sixth day on Wednesday against the physical and mental harassment by the HOD Dr  Mohmmad Mushtaq on Post Graduate and Under Graduate students.

“Despite informing the Principal/Dean and submitting a written complaint against the said HOD no action was taken against him for two and a half months,” the protesting students said.

They said that the administration has been further harassing students by forcing them to join back the department. “A circular was passed in which students were threatened of legal consequences against them,” they said.

They said that they stand by their demand of removal of Dr Mohammad Mushtaq as the head of the Department and formation of a student union on the same pattern as in other professional colleges.

“After health minster’s intervention, a two-day enquiry has been initiated by the DDC Srinagar. The students have time and again emphasized that they are meritorious and belong to a humble background and that the College administration is sleeping over the matter for past two and a half months,” the spokesperson of the GDCH students added.

The students said if their grievances are not addressed they will go on a hunger strike from Monday.

The protesting students urged chief minister and health minister to intervene into the issue.
