Doctors, nurses, health workers, stakeholders including the Hospital Development Committee and the local police administration have urged to work hard with high morale as before as there is a reliable security arrangement in the hospital.
Krishna Prasad Shrestha, a member of the Hospital Development Committee, said that Lumbini State Police Chief Rabindra Dhanuk himself had reached from Dang and urged them not to worry about the security of the hospital and return to work.
According to Shrestha, the health workers have accepted the request of all including the police administration to return to work keeping in view the current special situation as three of the key people involved in the incident have been arrested, cases have been filed against them and search for others involved has been intensified.
“After discussions between the hospital development committee, local government representatives, the chief of police administration, doctors and health workers, all the doctors and staff have returned to work as before,” Shrestha said.
Similarly, a seven-member working committee led by Assistant Chief District Officer Shankar Bahadur Bisht has taken information about the incident on Friday along with eyewitnesses, doctors and nurses who were attacked and beaten.
“We have also collected information about the incident today from other eyewitness wards, staff and doctors and nurses working in the ward,” Shrestha said.
Shrestha, a member of the Hospital Development Committee, said that 40 percent of the investigation was completed on Friday.
“We will also talk to them about the incident,” Shrestha said. “We will also discuss with civil society, human rights activists and other people and submit a report.”
Shrestha said that the doctors and health workers had agreed to return to work with the belief that action would be taken against the culprits as there was widespread protest and everyone demanded action against the culprits.
Are you under pressure? Shrestha could not deny that. “Some of my friends are of the opinion that the people accused in the incident should work together as they have political access,” said Shrestha.
