Addressing the protestors, the district president of the PCMS Union, Dr Kanwar Pal Singh, said the family members of a patient in the hospital assaulted Dr Sunil, because of which he was in a battle of life and death. He said doctors have always been dedicated to the service of the patients, adding that they do their best to save lives; however, the way doctors on duty were being mistreated by the patients’ families was a matter of concern, adding that this would not be tolerated. He demanded strict security arrangements be made for health officers at all government hospitals, and police personnel should be deployed so such incidents do not repeat. He said strict action should be taken against all the suspects who assaulted.
