Targeting on the actions taken by the government against the doctor, a social activist Rajan Choudhary told the HT, that “Announcing Dr Imitiaz as a history-sheeter by Jodhpur DCP (East) Kapoor is a welcome step. It has been the government’s negligence that Dr Imitiaz has not been terminated from his services and even his medical licence has not been cancelled.”
