Srinagar: Medicos on Monday held a sit-in outside the sub-district hospital Shopian to protest against the alleged indiscriminate firing at the hospital by the forces last night.

Reports reaching news agency GNS said that the doctors and the para-medical staff abstain from their duties and staged protests against the alleged harassment and subsequently indiscriminate firing in the hospital last night.

The doctors and the paramedical staff alleged that forces resorted to unprovoked firing inside the hospital premises last night.

The doctors and the para-medical staff alleged that the forces fired several shots into the casualty block and the blood bank inside the hospital following a heated argument with one of a doctor.

Later, a delegation of doctors met the deputy commissioner (DC) Shopian and presented a memorandum to him. The protesting doctors sought an investigation into the incident. (GNS)
