QUETTA: Doctors in Balochistan were observing a strike on Thursday against the killings of two of their colleagues and the kidnapping of one, DawnNews reported.

The strike was being observed on the call of the Pakistan Medical Association (PMA) and OPDs and general operation theatres in all government hospitals across Balochistan remained closed.

Doctors were however working in the hospitals’ emergency wards.

Unknown gunmen had killed Dr Abdul Hamid Shahwani in Mastung on Oct 6 and Dr Dawood Aziz Jan was shot dead in Khuzdar on Oct 8. Whereas, Dr Saeed Ahmed Khan, a renowned eye specialist, was abducted on Oct 16 by unidentified armed men from Quetta’s Sariab Road.

The PMA has given the provincial government 10 days to recover Dr Khan and to provide security to doctors working in the province.

The PMA has said that work in the emergency wards would also be suspended if the government failed to fulfill the doctors’ demands.
