Docs of Darbhanga Scientific Faculty Sanatorium, 200 km north from right here resorted to very large scale violence and arson at Laheriasarai within the wee hours of Saturday as their call for for Maggie may no longer be met via the shopkeepers. They have got close down the outside affected person departments and emergency services and products since 3 am.
Agitating medical doctors claimed they sought after maggie from a basic retailer outdoor the health facility premises, which was once no longer made to be had to them.
Enraged over the denial of Maggie, the younger medicos set on fireplace basic retail outlets, 4 clinical and chemists retail outlets, an adjacent motor using faculty and 6 cars parked within sight.
According to the complaint lodged by the Chemists and Druggists Association, they also set on fire four shopkeepers, who are admitted in the private hospitals.
Sub-divisional magistrate, Sparsh Gupta said that an FIR has been registered against six named medicos and three dozen unidentified boarders of the medical college hospital.
Sghahnawaj Khan, president of the druggists and chemists association in his FIR alleged the medicos were already drunk and were insisting on supply of Alprazolam tablets, a prohibited drug with the substance of intoxicants. He claimed the prohibited drug is supplied only on medical prescriptions which was not available with them. He denied the claim of the doctors that the trouble started over the non-delivery of Maggie as claimed by the doctors.
The local traders got support from the residents who blocked the movement of vehicles between Lahesarai and Darbhanga. The situation is still tense in town, police said.
