Meanwhile Indian Medical Association (IMA) on Tuesday described the incident as a “highly condemnable and shameful act”. They have submitted a letter in this regard to the President demanding the immediate release of the 24 under graduate medical students unconditionally.
“We demand immediate revocation of all charges against the arrested medical students and that Irfan Solanki should immediately be arrested and SSP Yashashvi Yadav should immediately be suspended from duty and FIR should be lodged.
“Further we demand that a judicial enquiry or a CBI enquiry into this matter should be initiated,” said Dr Narendra Saini, general secretary of IMA. IMA has also received a complaint from the Students of GSVM Medical College of Kanpur informing about the brutal attack by the Samajwadi Party MLA, Irfan Solanki and his supporters on February 28. “Despite complaint given to police on the incident, they did not take proper action and manhandled and mistreated the complainants and students.
“Mob blocked the emergency and compelled the authority of the College not to treat the injured and gun-shot patients”, said Saini. The medical fraternity in Kanpur has boycotted emergency services with the strike entering fourth day at various government and private hospitals. Several government hospitals in Uttar Pradesh have also joined the agitation.
