Tezpur (Assam), Jun 11 (PTI) Two persons have been

arrested for their alleged involvement in another case of

assault of a doctor in Assam''s Biswanath district, police said

on Friday.

Senior medical officer of Majuligarh Tea Estate

Basanta Goswami was assaulted over enforcement of COVID-19

restrictions in the garden area on Wednesday, police said.

The assailants had escaped after the incident.

A massive manhunt was launched by the police to nab

them and two of them were arrested on Thursday.

Another person is absconding and efforts are on to nab

him, the police said.

This is the third incident of attack on doctors in the

state in June.

On June 1, a junior doctor was assaulted by relatives

of a patient at a Covid Care Centre in Hojai district. The

police have arrested 28 people in connection with the

incident.

On June 4, two persons were arrested for assaulting

another doctor at the S K Roy Hospital in Hailakandi.

President of the Assam Chapter of the Indian Medical

Association Dr Satyajit Bora told PTI, it is unfortunate that

doctors are being attacked in the state, particularly in tea

gardens, due to which the healthcare workers are suffering

from a sense of insecurity.

"Young doctors do not want to go to tea gardens due to

frequent attacks on them and only senior and retired doctors

are providing service in the garden hospitals", he said.

Tea garden workers have the right to get medical

treatment but the sense of insecurity among the doctors while

serving there is "unfortunate and needs to be addressed at the

earliest".

He urged the garden management, organisations

representing the workers and other stakeholders to immediately

hold discussions and find a solution to the problem. PTI DG
