Srinagar: Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) said they are aghast over the “barbaric murderous” attack on ambulance driver of Health department on Thursday evening.
President Doctors Association Kashmir Dr G M Mir has condemned this “inhuman savage” attack wherein the forces at Safakadal have fired on to the ambulance driver namely Ghulam Mohammad working in Ganderbal district.
“The brave heart after being hit has still managed to ferry patients while driving with only one hand. The driver as per the information recieved has been operated but is grievously injured and has been shifted to Bone & Joint Hospital from SMHS,” he said.
Mir has called for an emergency meeting of all DAK executive members on Friday wherein the future action plan on this “criminal assault’ will be raised as the ground situation is such that shutting down the hospitals presently is not an option keeping the daily rush of injured patients to the hospitals into consideration.
Meanwhile, DAK warns the authorities that strict action should be taken against the culprit and he be booked immediately. “Forces have leashed a reign of terror by halting ambulances on roads and barging in hospitals previously and today’s murderous attempt has taken this barbarism to new heights,” he added.
