The Calcutta High Court on Wednesday sought the personal appearance of a doctor on the basis of whose medical certificate the former advisor of the West Bengal Central School Service Commission Prof. Santi Prasad Sinha had sought the Court's leave to not appear before it despite a prior direction to this effect.

The Court was adjudicating upon a plea alleging illegal appointment of assistant teachers in State run schools in West Bengal pertaining to the State Level Selection Test (SLST).

Justice Abhijit Gangopadhyay had earlier directed the former Chairman of the School Service Commission Soumitra Sarkar, Programme Officer Samarjit Achary to appear in person along with the former advisor of the Commission. 

On Wednesday the counsel appearing for the former advisor apprised the Court that his client is ill and further produced before the Court a medical certificate by a doctor one one Prof. (Dr.) Debasis Ray. 

Directing the concerned doctor to appear personally before the Court tomorrow i.e. on March 10 at 10:30am, the Court observed, 

"I direct the Registrar General to call the doctor over phone by 3:45 p.m. today, directing him to appear before this court personally at 10:30 a.m. tomorrow. Communication should also be made through email to the said doctor."

The Court further underscored that if the doctor fails to appear before the Court then further steps would be taken to ensure his presence. 

"It is made clear if he fails to appear before this court tomorrow at 10:30 a.m. to satisfy this court about the issuance of the said certificate, further steps will be taken by this court to ensure his presence", the Court observed further. 

Justice Gangopadhyay had earlier ordered the cancellation of appointment of six assistant teachers in the Murshidabad district after noting that they had been illegally appointed pursuant to the illegal recommendation of the West Bengal School Service Commission (WBSSC). The Court had further directed that the illegally recruited teachers should not be paid any salary henceforth and further ordered that the salaries already paid to them must be recovered by the District Inspector of Schools (SE), Murshidabad.

Case Title: Md. Abdul Gani Ansari v. The State of West Bengal & Ors.
