Little Riaz had been suffering from stomach pain for several days. His mother rushed him to Khulna Medical College Hospital from Narail only to find out that no doctors are seeing outpatients for the day as all healthcare officials across Khulna went on a 24-hour strike from 6:00am yesterday to protest a police official’s attack on Prof Dr Sheikh Nishat Abdullah, professor and head of the burn and plastic surgery department at Shaheed Sheikh Abu Naser Specialised Hospital.
