Goon Injures Woman Health Staff in Malda Medical College, Snatches Away Ornament
MALDA, 21 MAY: Gold chain of a woman health staff was snatched away by a goon from the outdoor of Malda Medical College and Hospital around 8.30 am today. The woman being critically injured by the blow of a heavy weapon used by the goon was admitted to MMCH. The chief medical officer of health (CMOH) conceded that antisocial activities have increased at MMCH campus.
It has been learnt that fourth grade employee of MMCH Subhadra Das, who works in the outdoor of the skin department, opens the office this morning. Soon after she entered the room, the goon attacked on her head with a heavy weapon. As she fell on the floor being senseless by the heavy blow, the miscreant ran away snatching away her gold chain worth approximate Rs 50000.
An acute sense of insecurity gripped the MMCH employees after the incident. Irate fourth grade employees demonstrated in front of the office of the super of the hospital. Debasish Bandopadhyay, working at the dentistry department, said, “Recently criminal activities have significantly risen in MMCH. A woman patient’s mobile phone and wallet were stolen 10 days back when she came for treatment here. Security was not beefed up though the matter was intimated to the super.”
Subir Roy, another fourth grade employee, also said, “Attacks were made on the health employees a number of times before also but no visible measure was taken.”
Super of the hospital Dr H Ari said, “If suck incidents become regular in MMCH, it would be difficult to convince the employees to provide service to the patients.” CMOH Dr SK Jhariyat said, “Crime has notably increased in MMCH but today’s incident is very frightening. Police should see why such incidents are taking place frequently despite the lodging of a police camp in MMCH premises.”
Superintendent of police Jayanta Pal said, “Since we have received the complaint, we have initiated probe into the matter. Searches are on to nab the goon.”
Meanwhile, the condition of Mrs Das, admitted with a deep injury in her head, was given eight stitches. Her condition continues to be critical as learnt from MMCH sources.
