Covid patient relatives attacked on doctor as they were outraged at the doctor:
Relatives of a covid patient who died on Tuesday at a coronavirus care center in Hojai district of central Assam brutally attacked a freshly passed doctor.
They were outraged at the doctor after the patient died before being taken to the hospital. The doctor was seriously injured but his condition is said to be stable.
“People have been arrested in connection with the incident. A doctor has been sent to Nagaon for better treatment,” said Hojai SP Barun Purkayastha.
As the medical fraternity condemned the incident, Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sharma directed the police to book the case on the accused.
“Our administration will not tolerate such barbaric attacks on our frontline workers,” Sharma tweeted, urging Assam police to see to it that the accused are brought to justice.
The Assam State Department of the Indian Medical Association (IMA) has strongly condemned the barbaric attack on the recently approved Dr. Shiv Kumar Senapati. The Medicos Body warned the government that the medical fraternity would find it very difficult to control emotions at this time in public health emergencies.
“IMA and all doctors are at a loss with this deadly gift to a front-line worker on covid duty. IMA wants all criminals to be arrested immediately and booked according to all the strict laws,” IMA state president Dr. Satyajit Bora and honorary secretary Dr. Shikha Sharma said in a statement.
