Committee members reviewed CCTV footage and verified signatures in the attendance register

After a video of a person signing an attendance register at Government Stanley Medical College Hospital surfaced continuously for several days on social media, an investigative committee concluded that there was no malpractice.

A committee chaired by Deputy Director A. Jamila conducted an investigation into the incident. The person appearing in the video clip was a first-year graduate student in the Department of Pharmacology.

According to her statement, she joined the department on March 29 and regularly signs in the attendance register, which is under the control of the head of the pharmacology department. The attendance register kept at the college secretariat was opened for signature after the last raking council. On April 30, while she was signing the college attendance register, hospital staff took a video without her knowledge.

The committee members viewed the CCTV footage and checked the signatures in the attendance register kept by the college. They concluded that she had not signed for anyone else and that there had been no malpractice in the register.

The committee would investigate the person who shot the video and submit the final report to the Medical Education Branch. The person, a science officer in the Department of Forensic Medicine, did not report to work and informed superiors of the leave by telephone, according to a press release.
