BMA Bogra unit gives 24-hour ultimatum to arrest the accused
Bangladesh Medical Association (BMA) Bogra unit took out a procession on Shaheed Ziaur Rahman Medical College and Hospital (SZMCH) campus yesterday demanding arrest of the outsiders who assaulted the doctors of the hospital on October 12.
After parading the campus, the doctors held a rally at the outdoor of the hospital and gave a 24-hour ultimatum to the authorities concerned to arrest the persons involved.
The BMA unit will also stage a token hunger strike from 10:00am to 12:00noon, bring out processions on SZMCH and Mohammad Ali Hospital campuses and submit memorandum to the deputy commissioner today.
Leaders of the unit threatened to launch a tougher agitation programme if the outsiders, who assaulted three doctors of SZMCH, were not arrested with the deadline.
They alleged that the three doctors were assaulted by the relatives of a patient who died at the hospital on Friday Abdullahil Baki, administrative officer of SZMCH, filed a case against 10 people with Sadar Police Station the following day.
Police said they have already arrested two of the accused and are trying to arrest the remaining eight.
