Itanagar: The Indian Medical Association Arunachal State branch (IMA-AP), Arunachal Pradesh Doctors Association (APDA), Indian Dental Association Arunachal State branch (IDA-AP) and the Tomo Riba Institute Of Health And Medical Sciences (TRIHMS) expressed “deep anguish and strong resentment over the life-threatening mob attack” on Dr Tabu Muri and Dr Nabam Jadav along with the vandalisation of the Samaritan Hormin Hospital on May 3, 2021.
“All the Doctors of Itanagar Capital Complex would go for two days ( Friday & Saturday) shut down of Routine Works excluding Emergency & Covid duties from 6 am of 7th May till 6 pm 8th May 2021 as a mark of protest against the attempt of mob lynching & vandalism,” the IMA-AP said in a statement.
Reacting to the attack on Arunachal doctors, the TRIHMS Faculty Association said in a message that it “condoles the death of the patient, but at the same time unequivocally condemns the attempted lynching of Dr Tabu Muri and Dr Nabam Jadav, and the sheer wanton vandalism of Hormin Hospital.”
The Arunachal Pradesh State Commission for Women (APSCW) has also taken suo-moto cognisance of a case wherein the relatives of a deceased have alleged that the woman died of medical negligence.
The Commission has requested the Itanagar Capital Region superintendent of police to conduct a fair and unbiased investigation in the case at the earliest so that justice may be delivered to the deceased and her family, APSCW chairperson Radhilu Chai said in a statement on Wednesday.
The APSCW also requests the general public to cooperate with the investigation and not take the law into their hands, Chai said. The Commission has, meanwhile, extended its condolences to the family members of the deceased.
