Physician Participation In Villupuram On Nationwide Protest Of IMA
Physician participation in Villupuram in the nationwide protest of the Indian Medical Association.
The protest was conducted in the form of a candle march in the memory of Dr. Archana Sharma, who worked as a doctor in Rajasthan and committed suicide.
Dr. Archana Sharma hails from Dausa, Rajasthan. While Archana was a gynecologist, a woman came to the hospital for delivery. While treating her, the woman is said to have died due to excessive bleeding.
Relatives, outraged by the woman’s death, blamed the mistreatment on the pregnant woman’s death and demanded the doctor’s arrest.
Following this, the police filed a case against the doctor. Archana Sharma committed suicide due to the resulting depression.
A nationwide protest is underway today by IMA, claiming that the doctor was not responsible for the death of the pregnant woman and therefore condemning the police for filing a false case.
Physician participation in Villupuram: Accordingly, more than 30 doctors marched from the Villupuram junction to the district collector’s office.
They were carrying banners with Dr. Archana’s photo on them and chanting slogans calling for the arrest of the police officer who had filed a case against her.
Further, the district administration, on the part of the police who filed the case against Archana, demanded that immediate arrest should be made.
The compensation should be paid to the victim’s doctor’s family and federal law should be brought to prevent violence against the doctor.
The protest also called for a change in the provisions of the Indian Penal Code, which criminalizes doctors.
