JAMMU: In what could he termed as a surprise move, Health and Medical education ministry on Tuesday removed Dr Zahid Geelani as Principal of Government Medical College (GMC) Jammu.
He has replaced with Head of the Anatomy department Dr Sunanda Raina. Dr Zahid had taken over as Principal on December 3, 2015 from Dr Ghanshyam Dev Gupta who was removed within 20 months after having taken over on April 25, 2014.
On being asked, outgoing Principal Dr Zahid Geelani said, “I don’t know the reasons behind this decision of the state government. May be, I have already served for more than 15 months. But I don’t know the reasons.”
