The appeal from Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain follows two incidents of violence against doctors in two hospitals here.

The Minister also asked Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi to probe both the cases and submit a report in 15 days. The two incidents were reported from the Bhagwan Mahavir Hospital and Babu Jagjiwan Ram Hospital.

Jain said: “You are requested to conduct an enquiry in both the incidents and fix responsibility against the guilty. The report … may be sent to me within 15 days.”

In his letter to Jung, Jain wrote: “While you instructed the police to provide adequate security in hospitals, two incidents have taken place…

“In these incidents, policemen were present at the site of the incidents. (But) they did not prevent the occurrence of the incidents and remained spectators.

“It seems there is a deliberate and malafide action on the part of the police to create such incidents and spread disaffection among the doctors to paralyze the services in the hospitals,” Jain wrote.

He said the police should nominate a senior officer to monitor all such cases.

Resident doctors of 22 government hospitals in Delhi went on strike on June 22-23 seeking security and better healthcare facilities.
