Sumer Sethi opposes violence against Doctors

From the Newspaper Times Of India
"In yet another incident of violence against doctors, a 30-year-old man barged into the paediatric ICU at Kalawati Saran Children's Hospital with a country-made pistol and held the staff hostage for nearly two hours. An FIR has been registered at the Mandir Marg police station. The accused, Pappu, a Shakarpur resident, barged into the ICU at 10:30 pm on Monday and left only after midnight. He was reportedly in an inebriated state. His 18-month-old son, Vinayak, who was suffering from bronchopneumonia had been admitted to the ICU, but was shifted out to the ward after he became stable on Sunday. Pappu, then proceeded to take his son home against the advice of hospital doctors.
"He came back yesterday at night in a drunken state. Dr Navin Butt, who was the senior resident on duty at the ICU, has been left shaken after the incident. Why is that we have to always go on strike for our demands to be met?,"queried Dr Sumer Sethi, President, Resident Doctors' Association (RDA). The RDA has demanded that a beat constable be available round-the-clock in the college campus and that a campus security council be formed with representation of the area DCP, ACP, SHO, RDA, nurses and students. There have been several such incidents in the past couple of months which have even led to strikes at Lok Nayak and Guru Teg Bahadur hospitals. "
