Assam: JMCH strike over doctor assault
GUWAHATI, May 23, 2018 (TNN): On Tuesday, over 80 interns of Jorhat Medical College Hospital(JMCH) went on a strike for over an hour in protest against the assault of one of their colleagues. The accused, Debasish Borah, is the driver of Jorhat deputy commissioner Narayan Konwar.
Konwar said, "I took my niece to JMCH at 4.30 am for treatment. She was bleeding from the nose. As it was an emergency, a temporary employee was driving my car. When we met the doctors at JMCH, we faced some unwanted behaviour from an intern for which the driver became angry and slapped him."
"However, the situation was brought under control after I intervened and the driver tendered an apology to the doctor. Later, the other interns launched a protest demanding arrest of the accused and accordingly he surrendered before police," he said.
