Doctors allege manhandling by police
3/27/2020 10:44:33 PM

KISHTWAR, Mar 27: The medical employees of Block Kishtwar today alleged that they were manhandled by the police while they were heading for hospitals/health centers in connection with professional duty.
They said that the unruly behaviour of police in Kishtwar with doctors is highly condemnable and urged upon the government to act and felicitate free movement of the doctors so that they can discharge their duties without any fear.
As per the statement issued by the Doctors Association at Kishtwar, on March 26, Dr Tehsin Majeed (Supervisor Covid 19) was heckled at Kuleed Chowk by one SI of JK Police and on the same day many employees were stopped and made to wait for hours while they were on their way to home after night duties at Thathri checkpoint along with one of the employees namely Muzaffer, MMPHW, who was not allowed to take his vehicle which was kept at Kuleed Post.
Similarly, Vikas Sen, MMPHW, today morning faced manhandling at Cherhar while he was on the way for screening of quarantined visitors while Murtaza Ali (Nodal Officer Covid 19 for entire Block Kishtwar) and Dr Nazir Hussain (Nodal Officer Bursar House Kishtwar) were heckled at Kuleed Chowk by two police officials, one Inspector level officer and another SI level officer.
Dr Noor ul Hasan (Supervisor Team Town, Covid 19) had to face the wrath of police at Zelna checkpoint. Despite telling the police officials that there is exemption for Health officials, he was continuously harassed.
In the time of this disaster (Covid 19 pandemic) where every second matters, such brazen attitude of the police has led to morale of health employees of Medical Block Kishtwar getting low which has significantly hampered their working.
“It’s thus humbly requested to to take serious note of the matter,” the doctors appealed to the government.
Similar allegations of harassment at old wine check post was also made by several front line employees who called upon the authorities not to harass them and ensure their free movement so that they can discharge their duty without any hindrance.
Despite repeated attempts senior officials could not respond to the calls.
