Doctor's Murder Sparks Protest in Danapur

Danapur: February 11, 2006,

To protest the murder of 32-year old Dr. Ehtesham Warsi of Daisy Clinic in Danapur area who was gunned down by criminals on Thursday evening, hundreds of men and women took to the streets chanting anti-government slogans and blocking the Danapur-Gandhi Maidan road for several hours bringing the traffic to a complete stop.

The protestors forced all the shops to close. Those who showed any sign of reluctance were beaten up and their shops vandalized, the police said. Several cars and scooters were also damaged in the process as the administration rushed senior police officials and Vajra, the anti-riot vehicle to check growing violence.

Situation was finally brought under control when the police promised to provide financial help to the family and a government job to a kin of the victim while also promising to catch the killers of Dr. Warsi without much delay.

Dr. Warsi was at his clinic on Thursday evening when two men on a motorcycle arrived there and opened fire at him. At least one bullet hit him that proved to be fatal for him.

The police has launched intensive raids in the area but so far no arrest has been made.
