Doctors Association Kashmir on Tuesday took a very strong note of the firing incident inside District Hospital Shopian by Police personals.

In a statement, Dr Suhail Naik, President Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) said that “it is a matter of great shame that police personnel resorted to indiscriminate firing inside the premises of district hospital when they barged into the hospital to retrieve a dead body.”

He said that in addition to this dastardly act forces also damaged the hospital property. It is sheer luck that none of the staff was injured or killed in this incident. Doctors and other staff are still in a state of mental shock and are not able to deliver their duties effectively since this unfortunate incident.

Dr Naik further said “according to Geneva Convention, in the war zones hospitals and ambulances are spared but it is very unfortunate these rules are thrown in the trash in this part of the world and we are at the receiving end by making us easy targets. Police, the law protectors are acting as law damages by resorting to such type of hooliganism.”

Jammu and Kashmir Doctors Coordination Committee also expressed dismay on hearing upon this shameful incident and expressed concern over the conditions in which the doctors have to work.

DAK stresses upon the Director General of Police, SP Vaid to intervene in this grave issue and issue an advisory to his men for proper behaviour with hospital staff so that we can deliver our duties fearlessly and with confidence. If immediate steps are not taken we would be forced to take extreme steps which will be detrimental to state health care and the whole onus will lie with the government.
