MAYHEM AT JAMMU HOSPITAL
No One From Govt Attends Injured
Jammu, July 18: There was total mayhem at Government Medical College and Hospital Jammu as there was no one from government to ensure proper treatment to the injured, most of them with bullet wounds received in firing by BSF in Gool area of Ramban.
As the first ambulance reached with two injured, there was no one available from civil administration. An SP and a dozen policemen were present at the spot, eyewitnesses said. They said that both the victims had bullet injuries and needed immediate surgery but it took the hospital administration quite a long time to start the treatment.
Sources said that the situation turned more chaotic when more injured started pouring in – the number of which went up to 16 by late afternoon.
“Among the injured, maximum were elderly persons, majority of them having more than one bullet injury,” sources said adding that it became very tough for the hospital management to arrange surgery of such a large number of patients at a time, especially when only the routine staff was present in the emergency ward.
They said that the injured were attended by the staff on the routine duty and there was no special arrangement made to provide quick and specialized treatment to the victims of the firing.
As more injured reached at the hospital, the police locked the emergency block and restricted the entry of outsiders. “Even the attendants were not allowed to accompany their injured relatives who were being kept in casualty and emergency wards,” eyewitnesses said.
The horrified attendants complained that they were not being allowed to attend their patients and are also not sure whether adequate treatment was being provided to them or not.
