Hyderabad: Two physiotherapy interns at Gandhi medical colleges were suspended and removed from rolls and handed back to their respective private colleges after their videos on TikTok application, shot in the physiotherapy department, went viral on the social media.
Four video clips of both students were widely circulated on social media platforms and WhatsApp groups pushing the Gandhi administration into a corner.
Soon afterwards, Gandhi superintendent issued a statement stating that action was taken against the two students and the Physiotherapy department in charge was also served a notice.
He clarified that neither doctors nor medical students were part of these videos. According to department officials, two interns M Shyam and Veena Kumar are part of a group of trainee physiotherapy technicians, undergoing one-year training at Gandhi hospital following completion of a two-year vocational course in Physiotherapy in private colleges.
While the female student completed her from a college located in Attapur, the male student completed the course at Ramnagar. After completion of the course, they enrolled at Gandhi for one-year training programme.
The two students, in their explanations, told the authorities that they shot these videos three months ago and after completion of work at 2 pm. These students have completed three months of their one-year training until now.
But, in wake of the Friday developments, they were suspended and sent back to their private college. This incident comes within days after TikTok videos of contract staff at Khammam Municipal Corporation went viral.
Following public outcry, the concerned staff were transferred with a pay cut by senior officials on being negligent in duties.
