Several MBBS students left stranded in Russia

After 133 students from across India were forced to abandon their MBBS course at Smolensk State Medical University (SSMU) in Russia for being taught in the Russian medium from their second year onwards, the university, as a precautionary measure, has now altered its policy and decided to not admit any Indian students in the Russian medium's MBBS course, but only in the English medium.
The Indian students have now decided to seek relief from the Medical Council of India and have written to them regarding their plight. They have also requested the council to allow them to continue their second year in another Russsian university.
MY Dyakov, Dean, faculty for foreign students at SSMU told DNA, "We plan to not admit Indian students in the Russian medium. The education consultancy has cheated Indian students and this incident has given a bad name to the university. We have to take a firm stand on the issue so that no other Indian student is cheated again."
DNA had reported how 133 Indian students who had gained admission at SSMU for an MBBS course were left in the lurch after they were told that they were enrolled for the course in the Russian medium, not English, by a Delhi-based agency, Rus Education.
While lessons were imparted in English for the initial year, the problems for the students began when the university started instructing them in the Russian medium from the second year onwards.

Accorording to colleagues present during the incident, three of them were treated and discharged while Jha told those accompanying the fourth - Deepak Singh - to get a CT scan done. for Deepak Singh. The group reportedly took Deepak away to a nearby nursing home. They returned with his body around 5am with a mob of about 50 and attacked the doctors alleging negligence.

"The mob targeted Abhishek and Ragini as they were the attending doctors. We had to rescue Ragini and lock her up in the operation theatre, otherwise God knows what the mob would have done to her," a colleague told TOI.

Abhishek was admitted at the surgical intensive care unit. In addition to the pain of the physical injury, Jha started suffering bouts of vomiting. A CT scan showed collection of blood near both his kidneys.

On Tuesday night he developed renal failure and was rushed to the nephrology wing of SSKM hospital for emergency dialysis. He was brought back to RGKMCH and shifted to the critical care unit. He was given another round of dialysis on Wednesday too.

Realizing Jha's critical condition, the hospital on Wednesday constituted a seven-member medical board headed by medicine head Dr Apurna Mukerjee. According to them, Jha had received severe blows on his abdomen and chest. He has also sustained extensive muscle damage throughout his body.

"The seven-member medical team will be monitoring his condition closely. He is doing better after receiving two rounds of dialysis," said RGKMCH principal Dr S Batyabal.
