Settle leave dispute with Goa’s Covid warrior doc: HC to gov


The Bombay High Court’s bench in Goa has directed the state government to “amicably settle” the issue of leave due to Dr Edwin Gomes, who has become the face of the state’s Covid management efforts.

The court order came after his wife petitioned it and said that Gomes was deprived of leave and not relieved of duties by the administration.

The order by Justices MS Jawalkar and MS Sonak was given on Friday, but made public on Sunday, also said that the matter should be resolved at the earliest to ensure that the focus is not shifted away from the coronavirus pandemic.
