Medicos threaten agitation if suspension not revoked

Excelsior Correspondent
Srinagar, May 27: Doctors have threatened to launch agitation if the Government does not revoke the suspension order against a senior doctor of SMHS.
Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) today in a statement called suspension of President DAK, Dr Nisar-ul-Hassan, as desperation and frustration of the Government.
Dr Nisar, an Assistant Professor Medicine at SMHS hospital, was arrested last week under Unlawful Activities Act, and placed under suspension on Monday by the Health Department, sparking outrage among the medical fraternity.
“Dr Nisar was booked by police on frivolous changes and arrested while on emergency duty attending patients, thus crossing all limits of human rights abuses,” the spokesman said.
The spokesman said police deliberately did not submit report in time before court and delayed the grant of bail to Dr Nisar, which was a conspiracy hatched by them so that Dr Nisar is suspended.
“Dr Nisar is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at SMHS Hospital, in charge of treatment of patients, teaching and research. His suspension will affect patient care and teaching in SMHS hospital. Poor and needy will suffer,” the spokesman said.
DAK has decided that doctors will wear black bands tomorrow to protest against the suspension order and if the suspension order is not revoked immediately “we will be left with no option than to shut down hospitals and the onus will lie on the Government”.
