Kashmiris Need 'Killing Touch': SKIMS Doc, Residents Demand Action   

SRINAGAR — A doctor, Dr Amit Sharma, DM scholar cardiology at SKIMS Soura, said in a facebook post on Saturday that Kashmir don’t need a healing touch but a ‘killing touch” following which Resident Doctor Association of the tertiary care hospital demanded action against him.   

The Resident Doctor Association SKIMS urged Director of the institution to suspend the doctor over the facebook post.  

The Association filed a formal complaint and urged the authorities to place him doctor under immediate suspension.

 “We condemn such acts and demand action as per law against him at the earliest,” the Resident Doctors Association said.

It demanded suspension of Sharma with immediate effect as ‘he can be a threat to patients he may be attending to’.

 “The post itself speaks of his hatred and communalism against Kashmiris. How such a person could be entrusted to treat the sick and needy people of Kashmir,” the association said.

It said that matter may be raised forthwith with cyber Police cell and a proper enquiry and action be taken as per law against him.
