Medicos booked for staging protests
Action Initiated Against 4 Doctors: Govt
Srinagar, July 26: Police have registered a case against a dozen doctors of Government Medical College here after they staged a peaceful sit-in on Saturday against human rights violations.
Police registered an FIR (No. 11/2010) against them in police station Karan Nagar for various ‘offences.’
A senior police official said that a case has been registered against the doctors, most of whom are doing their post-graduation from GMC and had taken part in the sit-in protests.
“They have been booked under various sections including 147 (guilty of rioting) 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) of RPC,” he said.
Principal, GMC Srinagar, Dr Shahida Mir said that she had no information about any action being initiated by the government. Minister for medical education, R S Chib told Greater Kashmir that action has been initiated against the doctors.
“There were some 30 doctors who participated in the protests. But action has been initiated against four doctors, who were leading the protests. They instigated people and raised anti-national slogans,” Chib said. He said police has registered a case and were carrying out investigations.
Asked what sort of action will be taken against medicos, the minister said, “They have definitely violated service rule. We will see what investigations reveal. Whatever action is warranted, department will take it.”
Doctors fraternity has taken strong exception to the ‘high-handedness’ of the government. “Now even peaceful protests are a sin before this government,” a doctor said.
Meanwhile, Employees Joint Action Committee (Q) has threatened massive protests if, according to it, the FIR against its president Abdul Qayoom Wani for leading protest demonstrations against the human rights violations is not withdraw immediately.
Police has registered an FIR against Wani in police station Shaheed Gunj for organizing protests against the human rights abuses and arrest of youth.
