Stone Pelting at AIIMS: Doctors cry for more security

Stone Pelting at AIIMS: Doctors cry for more security

New Delhi: The resident doctors’ association of AIIMS urged the hospital administration to strengthen the security at the gates of its trauma centre following a major scuffle between miscreants and security guards.

In a letter to the chief of AIIMS trauma centre, the AIIMS RDA has expressed concern about the security of the resident doctors who reside in the trauma centre doctors’ hostels and also those who take the tunnel route to trauma centre for their duties.

 “As you are aware there was a stone pelting and misbehaviour by some outsiders at gate number three Thursday, similar issues have existed for long,” the letter said.

Stating that the security for doctors cannot be compromised, the RDA urged the hospital authorities to ensure no such incident takes place again.

“Please kindly direct the security department near the gate number 3 so that no untoward incident happens. Delhi police help may also be sought in this regard if needed,” said the letter.

According to the security department of AIIMS, late last night, a group of drunken men attacked the security guards deployed at gate number 3.

“They had to call the Delhi police for help. It was with the help of the police that they were able to help lock the gates later, but could not disperse the mob. They were throwing stones and bricks on the gate and few of the guards got injured,” said the security supervisor of the trauma centre, also known as Jai Prakash Narayan Apex Trauma Centre.

  1. Doctors should be Given License for guns and this is necessary .This will happen.Security guards have guns too. But they will never be reliable if the mob surrounds the security guards.Mobs run away helter skelter with the sound of a gun. a single gunshot in the air can control a mob of even 10,000 people.
