Nashik : In response to the recent shocking attack on Dr. Kailas Rathi at Suyog Hospital in Panchvati, the Police Commissioner, Sandeep Karnik, has accepted the Indian Medical Association’s (IMA) demand for enhanced safety measures for doctors. A directive will be issued to all police stations, mandating regular patrols to visit hospitals in the city. Initially, hospitals with 30 beds or more will receive priority, followed by smaller hospitals. Karnik has assured medical professionals that a dedicated team comprising local police officers and doctors will be formed to ensure the safety of doctors.

The attack on Dr. Rathi, which occurred during his night shift at the hospital, has raised significant concerns within the medical community. A meeting of various medical professional associations was convened at the IMA auditorium, bringing together representatives from IMA Nashik, IMA Nashik Road, Panchvati, Physician, Dental, Homeopathy, and approximately 200 doctors. Following the meeting, a delegation from these medical organizations met with Police Commissioner Sandeep Karnik and submitted a statement expressing their concerns and demands.

Dr. Rathi is currently in critical condition, fighting for survival in the intensive care unit. IMA Nashik President, Dr. Vishal Gunjal, and President of Nashik Road branch, Swapnanjali Awad, emphasized the need for concrete police action against attacks on doctors in hospitals. They called for clear instructions to be issued to all police stations regarding the safety of doctors.

As part of the protective measures, police patrols will regularly visit various hospitals within the jurisdiction of each police station. Larger hospitals with over 30 beds will be the initial focus, with smaller hospitals included later. A joint group comprising officers from local police stations and doctors in the area will be formed to maintain communication and ensure a coordinated approach. 

The IMA will provide a list of hospitals and representative contact numbers to the police. Hospital visits by the police are set to commence from February 28 under this initiative.
