Allahabad, Sep 13 (UNI) Passing an order in the matter of medical examinations in police force, Allahabad High Court (HC) has remarked that slackness in medical examination during the appointment and the training period, have led to a second or third medical examination becoming rampant in the department.

A single judge bench comprising Justice Rakesh Tiwari passed the order on a writ petition filed by Jitendra Kumar Kamboj and nine others , all constables, dismissed from service on the ground of being medically unfit. Later, they were recruited in 2005-06 at various districts.

Directing the Uttar Pradesh government to file a counter affidavit within two weeks, the HC noted it would be necessary that strict action be initiated against those officers and doctors, who are guilty of appointing medically unfit constables.

''The matter is serious and the court may also request the petitioners to undergo a fresh medical examination, which shall be considered on the next hearing date,'' the bench added.

The next hearing is after five weeks.
