“I was stopped by a team of policemen at Pailapool Chari-Ali. As part of the police enquiry, with all due cooperation, I stated my case and introduced myself as a doctor on duty, who is traveling with a permission letter from the DC office. To this, I was caught by my collar and Pulled out of my car. One of the policemen introduced himself as SDPO and told me what if you’re a doctor, do you know who am I and slapped me. Before I could understand anything from this repose of the police team, a brutal assault had begun with lathis on me and my driver “.
I was also taken to Lakhipur police station and was threatened to be detained under a framed charge of obstructing police from their duty. I was made to verbally apologize before I was released from the police station. As I write this, I am extremely traumatized by the incident.
With the physical and mental injuries that I suffered, I am not sure when I will be fit and able to perform my duties as a doctor and contribute to the fight against the COVID pandemic. As I find myself disturbed, weak, and helpless. I am seeking justice with all your help.
