BHU doctors on protest after colleagues assaulted
Resident Doctors of the BHU Trauma Centre have been on Protest since yesterday, after students of the same university allegedly beat up the resident doctors and other staff of the hospital over treatment issues.
The incident goes back to Tuesday, a bike accident occurred near the hospital premises itself where an attendant of patient was hit by two student of BHU hospital on a bike. The injured attendant and the bikers were brought to the emergency of the trauma centre, where the Medical officer on duty, informed that this being a RTA has to be reported to the police as an MLC. The students began pressurising the MO, Dr Shrinivas not to make an MLC and continue the treatment. The further insistence of Dr Shrinivas to make an MLC did not go well with students who began to allegedly cause ruckus at the Trauma centre, breaking hospital apparatus and beating up the resident doctor and other medical staff on duty.
The entire footage of the ruckus had been caught on the CCTV camera of the hospital, a copy of which can be accessed on the link below.
Dr Deepak, Resident Doctor at BHU trauma Centre, informed Medical dialogues, that the injuries sustained by Dr Shrinivas were so severe and grave in nature, that he had to be admitted in the ICU. Dr Shrinivas may lose his eye, informs the doctor.
The striking doctors are demanding strict action including suspension and arrest of the accused who ran away after the incident. Dainik Bhaskar reported that the IMS Director BK Shukla as well as BHU Chancellor Professor GC Tripathi have both tried to convince the doctors to break their strike, but the doctors say that they will not budge, till action is taken against the accused as well as till enhanced security measures including availability of a PAC at the hospital are provided.
Meanwhile, the University has suspended one of the Bikers, Mr Ujjwal and have formed a three member committee to look into the matter.
