  1. Unless the police books non bailable warrants against the persons who damaged the hospital and assaulted the staff, such incidences will keep occurring.
    The law is in place. Implementation is with the police. In Karnataka plenty of associations came together to make the home minister order the DGP to strictly implement the act. Both promised on stage. This is the time to keep up their promise. Just a police deployment is not enough.
