DMCH doctors shut outdoor services over ‘assault’

The doctors and staff members of Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) on Tuesday have postponed all outdoor services after the relatives of a deceased patient allegedly attacked some physicians on October 29 (Sunday). 

Suspending the service around 9:15 am, the protesting doctors formed a human-chain in front of the outdoor unit demanding realisation of their five-point demand. 

The protesters demanded punishment of attackers and security of the doctors. 

The doctors also demanded deployment of skilled law enforcing force along with the Ansar members at the hospital. 

Following death of a patient Nawshad, the relatives of the deceased locked into an altercation with some physicians alleging that he died of wrong treatment. 

At one stage, the angry relatives attacked doctors, nurses, officials and Ansar members, leaving two physicians and three Ansar men injured. 

A case was filed with Shahbagh Police Station and police, meanwhile, arrested four men in this connection.
