    Pijush Hazarika Condemns Teok TE Lynching Case, Urges People To Respect Doctors

    Pijush Hazarika has urged people of Assam to show love and respect towards all the doctors while condemning the lynching act which shook the state

    Amid statewide protests by doctors in solidarity with Dr Deben Dutta who was lynched to death in Teok Tea Estate of Assam’s Jorhat district, Minister of state for health Pijush Hazarika condemning the act has urged people of Assam to show love and respect towards all the doctors.

    “What happened in Teok is heart-wrenching. Doctors try their level best to save patients’ lives but death is inevitable. Doctors are not our enemies, they should be respected,” the Minister said while addressing the media.

    Demanding stringent measures against the culprits, Hazarika added, “Such act of violence should be stopped in the state. People should be made aware of the hardships a doctor has to face while serving in remote places. Their works should be valued,”.

    On August 31st, 2019, 73-year-old Dr Dutta was mercilessly beaten by the relatives of a tea garden worker for allegedly reaching the hospital premises late. He was working in the tea garden hospital after his retirement without remuneration.

    Hazarika also mentioned that Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal-led Assam government has decided to set up a fast-track court to probe into the killing of Dr Deben Dutta. A total of 32 persons have been arrested in connection with the incident so far. The Assam Police on September 4th, 2019 arrested the prime accused.

    Meanwhile, an inquiry committee has been constituted and the government asked the commissioner and secretary to the finance department, Shyam Jagannathan, to inquire into the killing. Earlier, the government entrusted additional deputy commissioner Subhan Gowala as the investigating officer.
