A delegation of doctors, under the banner of the Punjab Civil Medical Services Association, met the SHO of the cantonment police station, demanding the arrest of absconding accused, including former chairman of Zila Parishad (ZP) Bikramjit Singh, for allegedly beating up a woman doctor employed at the Rampura civil hospital on Bathinda-Rampura road.
The police have arrested six accused, identified as Ranjit Singh, Manmohan Singh, Dharminder Singh alias Bhinder, Amarjeet Singh alias Kala and two people named Amandeep Singh. Bikramjit Singh and Binder Singh are yet to be arrested.
President of the district unit of the association, Beant Singh Mann, said doctors demanded immediate arrest of the remaining two, including the main accused Bikramjit Singh.
Renuka Goel, a doctor employed at the Rampura Phul civil hospital in her complaint had alleged that Bikramjit Singh, along with others, had attacked her and her driver while she was going to attend an emergency case in the hospital on Friday night.
She had alleged that a car hit their car while the driver was trying to allow vehicles coming from the other side pass the barricades near Chetak Park in the cantonment area. When her driver got out of the car to see the damage, Bikramjit Singh, who was driving the other vehicle, attacked him and some more people joined them to beat her up too.
SHO Mohan Lal said that after the complaint, police have arrested six persons and were on the lookout for the remaining two. A case under Sections 279, 323, 337, 427 has been registered against the accused.
