Support in favor of renowned pediatrician of Sopore Sub District hospital keeps growing after some newspaper reports alleged negligence by an on-duty doctor. People staged a ‘support rally’ on Saturday in favour of the senior pediatrician  doctor Suhail Naik. The rally was taken out in the premises of Sub-district Hospital Sopore.

General public and the patients who came from adjacent areas of North kashmir today staged demonstration outside SDH Sopore demanding ‘justice’ for the pediatrician doctor.

“I have been getting treatment of my son by Dr Suhail and i believe he is the best paediatrician in the town, said a father waiting outside Dr Naik’s room in SDH Sopore.

The protesters said if the pediatrician is transfered, their protest would continue and they won’t let adminstration ‘repeat what they have done (transfered good doctors) in past.

“This doctor (Suhail Naik) is a very humble human being besides being a caring doctor. He treats every kid (patient) like his own”, said another father from Kupwara.
