Shock and sensation at AMCH

Doctors at the Assam Medical College Hospital in Dibrugarh have threatened to sit in strike their safety and security in the duty hours.

Talking to Assam Times, the junior doctors said that if the Sarita Toshniwal case is murder then it is a fit case of security lapse.

They further demanded a thorough probe into the entire incident of how a doctor on duty was allegedly murdered with a surgical knife by cutting in her throat. That too in duty hours at the intensive care unit.

Some others slammed the college authority for deploying her alone at the ICU at night. “If the college authority does not listen to us, we have no option but to sit in strike immediately,” told a doctor to Assam Times.
