Massive protests broke out at Government Medical College Srinagar here on Wednesday against the alleged thrashing of a doctor by a police officer and his escort personnel while he was on duty.
The post-graduate students and resident doctors have gone on a strike and are demanding severe action against the erring cop. Students have also boycotted the classes.
The protesters alleged that a police man manhandled and thrashed a doctor while he was on duty at Medical Intensive Care Unit of the SMHS Hospital.
“His (policeman’s) mother is admitted at the hospital. She is morbidly sick and when he came to see her, he ruthlessly beat up Ovais Wani, a third year post graduate student, who was on duty at the time of the attack,” a group of protesting doctors said.
Meanwhile, the top police officials including SSP Srinagar has reached the hospital to sort out the issue.
