Strike in Quetta has psychiatrist goes missing

A complete shutter down strike was observed on Sunday in Quetta and other parts of Balochistan to protest against the kidnapping of renowned psychiatrist Dr Ghulam Rasool, who was abducted last week. 

The Pakistan Medical Association (PMA), Balochistan, and other doctors’ representative bodies issued the call for the strike which was also endorsed by various political parties, including the Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP), Awami National Party (ANP),
National Party and others, including a local traders’ organisation, the Markazi Anjuman Tajran Balochistan.

All concerned businesses and markets remained closed in the provincial metropolis, including those along the Shahrah-e-Iqbal, Jinnah Road, Liaquat Bazaar, Prince Road, Kansi Road, McCongy Road, Fatima Jinnah Road, Masjid Road, Sirki Road, Zarghoon Road,
Moti Ram Road, Gordat Singh Road, Shawakshak Road and others parts, thus resounding their resentment against the kidnapping of Dr Ghulam Rasool, who was abducted last Wednesday by unknown gunmen.

Traffic remained thin on the city roads and the usual four wheelers were absent. Additional police teams and law enforcement agencies were deployed to avoid any untoward situation. Meanwhile, doctors continued to strike in public and private hospitals, and
stayed away from the main wards as well. However, emergency wards remained open where doctors attended critical cases.
