DAK Seeks Action Against DC For Doctors Detention

SRINAGAR — The Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) has asked the doctors to protests the inability of government to take any action against Deputy Commissioner Reasi for misbehaving with a senior orthopedician and detaining him illegally.

“The whole doctor community of J&K is deeply anguished & pained by abnormal  behavior of DC Reasi and stand united with victimized doctor” the DAK president, Suhail Naik said in a statement.

“For last decades we are fighting against all those unscrupulous elements and rowdies of society who are assaulting and harassing doctors, in turmoil hit state. Therefore it is very shocking that now we have to face psychotic, schizophrenic and inappropriate behavior from administrative officers in Governor- led government, who seem to be patients of power arrogance,” Naik added.
The DAK said that it was “extremely painful that eccentric behavior of such responsible officials have demoralized and dispirited our noble profession and is one of the main reasons that large number of our astute specialists and super specialists are leaving this state.”

“The callous and insensitive attitude of state government to initiate requisite administrative action under prescribed civil service rules (CSR) against Deputy Development Commissioner Reasi for his misbehavior, illegal detention, and abuse of power is unfortunate and shocking.’’

DAK said that it “showed his utmost displeasure over the silence of government towards this sensitive issue.” “We expect government authorities will respond to our plea soon and an appropriate action under law of land will be taken against erring officer,” it added. 

General Secretary DAK, Owais H Dar stressed that “we are in touch with our counter parts at Jammu and have full solidarity with the striking doctors. In case no progress is made and said official is not booked under relevant laws, we will be constrained to escalate our protests and go for indefinite strike also.”
