Dr Azeem Malik, Chief Medical Officer (CMO) of Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College (JNMC) at Aligarh Muslim University, who had questioned the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) report in the Hathras woman’s case was terminated from his post at the hospital.

Malik had contradicted the police’s claim that the Hathras victim was not raped. On October 16, in a letter, Malik was asked: “Not to perform any further duties”.

On October 5, Dr Azeem Malik had told the Indian Express, “The samples were collected 11 days after the woman was allegedly raped, while government guidelines strictly say forensic evidence can only be found up to 96 hours after the incident. This report can’t confirm rape in this incident.”

Other than Malik, another specialist, Obaid Haque has been given a comparable letter by the medical clinic. 

While Malik had repudiated the police's case, Haque had confirmed the lady's medico-legitimate case report. 

Malik was selected as the impermanent CMO after 6 out of 11 CMOs of the emergency clinic contracted Coronavirus. His term was required to stretch out till November yet has been suddenly ended.

Their removal from the post comes a day after a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) team visited the hospital in relation to the Hathras rape case.
