Doctors threaten indefinite strike
Arrest of Medicos
Srinagar, Nov 30: Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) has threatened indefinite strike from Monday if the doctors arrested from District Hospital Kulgam were not released by Saturday.
In a statement issued here today, DAK president Dr Nisar-ul-Hassan while criticizing the police for arresting the doctors of District Hospital Kulgam and keeping them in custody since 27 November 2012, has said that if the arrested doctors were not released by tomorrow medical fraternity across the Valley including tertiary care hospitals will proceed on strike from Monday.
“The arrest of doctors is uncalled for and is a matter of concern for the whole medical fraternity. It is ironical that police are depriving people from medical services by detaining doctors in fabricated cases. The arrest of doctors is illegal and unlawful and is against the standing order of Supreme Court,” Dr Nisar said and added the attitude of police towards doctors proves beyond doubt that Jammu and Kashmir is a police state.
He appealed all doctors to support the strike call to restore dignity and sanctity of medical profession.
Pertinently, two doctors of DH Kulgam were arrested on November 27 for alleged negligence in their duties.
