Attack on doctors should be non-bailable: Harsh Vardhan

Friday - June 14, 2019 8:52 pm , Category : HEALTH
New Delhi, June 14 (IANS) Amid country-wide protests by doctors in solidarity with the striking doctors of West Bengal, Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan on Friday urged the government to pass a law that makes any attack on doctors a non-bailable offence.
"Heinous repeated attacks on doctors across India esp WBengal have led to this situation.Govt must pass a Law to make any attack on Docs a non-bailable offence with min 12 yr jail. Draconian Clinical Establishment Act that treats Docs as criminals must be withdrawn," he tweeted.
The protest began across the country on Friday after a junior doctor at the state-run NRS Hospital in Kolkata was allegedly beaten up by the kin of a 75-year-old patient who died there late on Monday night.
Following the incident, doctors in most government hospitals across the state stopped working.
