Bangalore: Facing huge backlash from the Karnataka Medical fraternity who had literally dropped their work after a female PG medico at Bangalore medical college and Research Institute (BMCRI) was assaulted by political goons, authorities have now arrested 12 persons connected to the care

Twelve Karnataka activists, including four women were arrested for allegedly heckling a woman doctor, for not speaking in Kannada a week ago, police said on 8th November.

“The 12 activists were taken into custody when they surrendered at the City Market police station on the basis of an FIR filed against them a day after the incident on November 1,” Assistant Commissioner of Police (south) Vali Basha told IANS. When the activists were produced in a local court, they were granted a conditional bail on furnishing a Rs 50,000 bond each and released.

Medical Dialogues had earlier reported that last week a female PG medical student associated with Bangalore Medical College and Research Institute (BMCRI) recently became a victim of a brutal assault allegedly by members of Karnataka Rakshana Vedike (KRV) for not speaking in Kannada.

Condemning the attack, doctors and medical students belonging to the Institute’s Resident Doctors’ Association staged a protest and called for an ‘indefinite boycott’ of OPD services at various attached hospitals, including Minto Eye Hospital, Victoria Hospitals, PMSSY and others. They soon found support of private medical practitioners including IMA Karnataka who called for a complete OPD shut down on Friday

The protesting doctors have also initiated a Postcard Abhiyan seeking the Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi to address the issue and take necessary action.

    UNFORTUNATELY IT\’S A REGULAR AFFAIR THE JUNIOR DOCTORS BEING ASSAULTED BY THE ANGERY MOB, INVARIABLY FOLLOWED BY THE DAMAGE, DISABILITIES AND OFTEN DEATH OF THEIR NEANER& DEARER ONE\’S. SOME OF THE IMPORTANT THINGS HARDLY ANY ONE TALKS ABOUT ARE – THE REAL CULPRITS ARE NEVER COME / BROUGHT IN THE PICTURE / DISCUSSIONS ARE THE SO CALLED ADMINISTORS COMFORTABLY SITTING IN THEIR AIR CONDITION CHAMBERS PUMPING / PUSHING ALL KINDS UNWANTED, UNNECESSARY, OUTDATED, UNFIT MATERIALS, DRUGS, DEVICES, DISPOSABLES, CONSUMABLES, EQUIPMENTS, INSTRUMENTS, IMPLANTS TO MAKE EASY MONEY. SECOND THE SO CALLED TEACHERS ARE OFTEN NOT PRESENT HELPING, GUIDING THE JUNIOR DOCTORS, THEY ( MOST OF THEM) DISAPPEAR TO THEIR PRIVATE PRACTICE SOON AFTER BIOMETRICS LEAVING OPD s & WARD AND OTHER WORK TO JUNIOR DOCTORS. THOUGH THERE ARE SEVERAL OTHER REASONS THESE ARE TWO IMPORTANT REASONS FOR FAILURE OF TREATMENT & BAD TO WORST OUT COME CREATING MENTALLY UPSET FORCING PATIENT\’S FRIENDS & RELATIVES & EVEN ACTIVITIES GO CRAZY TO RANSACK, RAMPAGE
    WITH RAGE. I HAVE FEELING IT\’S NEITHER THE MISTAKE OF THE JUNIOR DOCTORS NOR THE PATIENT\’S RELATIVES, FRIENDS & ACTIVISTS. IT IS DUE CARELESS, CORRUPT, CUNNING ATTITUDE OF THE PEOPLE SITTING IN THEIR AIR CONDITION CHAMBERS AND LOOTING PUBLIC MONEY FOR THEIR PERSONAL PLEASURES.
