A DAY after two medicos were seriously injured by unidentified men, the junior doctors (JDs) at MY Hospital submitted a memorandum demanding early arrest of the culprits to the Indore IG Rajendra Kumar at his office on Tuesday. Meanwhile, normalcy returned to the functioning of the hospital with the JDs displaying token protest by tying black ribbons to their aprons.
“We submitted a memorandum to the IG. We also informed him about the efforts of interference by a certain political leader. The written memo also has the number of the vehicle, allegedly belonging to the unidentified attackers,” Madhya Pradesh Junior Doctors’ Association president Dr Anand Rai said here.
Following the IG’s assurance, the junior doctors resumed work and the OPD and other departments at the MY functioned normally. The classes at the MGM Medical College too went on smoothly.
The junior doctors and MGM students had on Monday gone on a flash strike protesting police inaction and demanding arrest of the culprits in connection with an incident involving Raghavendra Thakur, a third year MBBS student and the president of the Medical Students’ Association, Vivek Chouhan of first year. While Chouhan is coping well, Raghavendra is still not stable but out of danger, hospital sources said.
