SRINAGAR: Department of Cardiology, SKIMS performs a successful complex percutaneous transcatheter intervention in a high risk case. HOD Cardiology, Dr. Nisar Tramboo informed that a 70 year old man came with a massive heart attack. His angiogram showed advanced coronary artery disease and a Ventricular Septal Defect (A hole in the heart). This condition carries high chances of death if left untreated. There were two options of treatment, either open heart surgery or percutaneous transcatheter treatment.

We decided for percutaneous transcatheter treatment as Open heart surgery was considered to be high risk in view of age and complex disease. The patient underwent multivessel stenting followed by VSD device closure (Closing hole in heart by a button) and is doing well.

The procedure was done by cardiology team lead by Professor Nisar Tramboo, besides including Prof. Hilal Rather, Dr. Amir Rashid, Dr. Asif Matoo, Dr. Abid Hussain, Mr. Syed Bilal, Mr. Mohammad Rafiq, Mrs. Tawheeda Khan. It is pertinent to mention that besides doing advanced coronary interventions, the department runs successfully advanced structural and pediatric intervention program. Director SKIMS/EOSG congratulated the department for conducting such complex procedures. The experts at SKIMS are of international repute, who conduct these procedures with dexterity and dedication and benefit poor patients at SKIMS, he added.

SRINAGAR: Crime Branch Kashmir registered FIR punishable U/S 420, 467,468,471,120-B/RPC, 5(1)(d) r/w 5(2) P.C Act against the concerned officers/ officials and fake employees of Health Department.

Crime Branch Kashmir received a communication from Directorate of Health Services Kashmir which inter-alia reveals that 129 persons have been identified by District Fund Officer Bandipora in 03 medical Blocks of District Bandipora viz block, Hajin Bandipora & Gurez who are holding fictitious GPF numbers and do not find any place in the records of District Fund Office Bandipora and also many illegal appointments have been made in medical block Bandipora, Hajin & Gurez. Subsequently, a preliminary enquiry was conducted at Crime Branch Kashmir.

During the course of inquiry, it came to fore that 129 employees of District Bandipora, 26 from Block Bandipora, 17 from Hajin and 86 from Block Gurez have fictitious GPF A/C NO’s, with allotted computer code 7501, have been found fake and fictitious. The offices of BMO Bandipora, Hajin and Gurez have reflected the said fictitious GPF Code 7501 on the LPCs issued by them in favour of those fraudulently appointed employees. The appointment orders purportedly to have been issued by CMO Baramulla are fake and fictitious issued in a fraudulent manner and then transferred to different Medical Blocks with their service books / LPCs prepared and dispatched.

In this manner a huge number of illegally and fraudulently appointed employees have been drawing salary deceitfully since long under a well knit criminal conspiracy in league with concerned officers/officials in well knit conspiracy a huge loss has been caused to the state exchequer against the corresponding wrongful gain to fraudulently appointed employees.
