RAWALPINDI - Punjab government has stopped the retirement process of former principal Rawalpindi Medical College (RMC), Prof Dr Mussadiq Khan till the completion of inquiries under Punjab Employees Efficiency, Discipline and Accountability (PEEDA) Act for alleged corruption and undue use of power.Under PEEDA Act, retirement cannot be given if any inquiry was underway against a government officer. According to sources, the former principal RMC had been suspended on the charges of corruption and misuse of power and issued show cause notice. Later, he was reinstated without facing inquiry committee. He was again suspended in December last year when a rat bit a kid in the holy Family hospital. He was to be retired on December 28, 2012 but the retirement process has been stopped due to the underway inquiry against him under PEEDA Act.Secretary Health Punjab has issued notification in this connection which says that former principal of RMC would be able to receive pension only after all inquiries against him were completed. Meanwhile, sitting principal of RMC, Prof Dr Afzal Farooqi and former Medical Superintendent of Holy Family Hospital Captain (Retd) Fayyaz would get retirement next month.
