“Since there is no strong action against the attackers of doctors, common psychology has developed in the society that patients in the hospital died only due to the failure of the doctors; hence assault on the doctor is the immediate remedy. Neither the government nor society took a strong stand against the notion. None of the offenders is punished so far in the state,” alleged an ATGDA official.

  1. Digging for themselves.Disgraceful

  2. Indian knows that to which party he belongs…..Ayodhya riots/aseemanand like people are not punished, then what’s this matters….

  3. Let\’s not politicise this issue brother.. Similar episodes have happened with other political party as well. Can debate long on that.. Point here is doctor was assaulted, n culprit needs to be punished. .. Many people responsible for riots from all parties r roaming free..

  4. Ailments of the medical profession requires immediate attention lest the society will become sick – this is true for all but very urgent for medical profession where even a corporator thinks that he is immortal!! but for the doctors!!??

  5. Has the culprit been arrested
