Dibrugarh: Obtaining preventative bail in connection with the current attack on mediapersons and cops at the Assam Medical College and Hospital (AMCH) campus here lately by the junior doctors of the medical institute would not be likely as the police have already moved the Gauhati High Court to reject it, by appealing for a caveat.
Superintendent of Police (SP) Arabinda Kalita told mediapersons “We have already faxed an objection message to the Gauhati High Court. We have made a request not to offer anticipatory bail to the absconding doctors.”
He also said that Deputy Commissioner had written to the Principal of AMCH to produce the main accused Registrar Dr David Pegu before the police. On Wednesday night, the violence was supposedly orchestrated by Dr Pegu, in which one Dinesh Das, cameraman of NewsLive channel sustained serious injuries and had to be admitted to ICU.
At least 7 mediapersons and 4 police personnel were injured in that attack. The media fraternity of the city has been demanding justice ever since the attack.
“We are looking for the guilty but we are not able to trace them. If you can pinpoint them, we will surely arrest them,” the Superintendent of Police said.
In a meeting with the Superintendent of Police today, the mediapersons were told that police already conducted raids in some of the locations in the AMCH campus to arrest the accused doctors and had quizzed a few.
