SHILLONG: Unidentified miscreants, armed with lethal weapons, assaulted a resident doctor of Mahendraganj Community Health Centre (CHC) Dr Apchan Sangma on Saturday afternoon.

According to police, the miscreants, numbering around 10 to 15, besides assaulting the doctor looted Rs 17, 000 from him, gold ornaments belonging to one of the female staff. They also took away one motorcycle.

According to a Meghalaya Medical Services Association (MMSA) source, the miscreants were suspected to be Bangladeshi nationals.

This is not the first case when a doctor was targeted in Garo Hills, the MMSA source said.

It may be mentioned here that on October 13, a Garo Hills-based doctor had a narrow escape when she unknowingly conducted blood tests of two militants. After conducting the test, the duo forced the doctor to furnish the test report within an hour. Again on September 25, 15 policemen assaulted a doctor of Chokpot Primary Heath Centre — Dr WN Sangma, before dragging him to the police station in full public glare simply for asking them to avoid parking their vehicles in a no-parking area inside the PHC campus.
