GUJRANWALA - The bail request of seven young doctors of the Young Doctors Association (YDA) including its Gujranwala chapter President, involved in the assault on senior doctors, was turned down by the District and Sessions Court here on Thursday.

As per detail, the bail request of seven doctors of YDA including its YDA Gujranwala chapter President Dr Kashif Bilal, Dr Ahtesham, Dr Kashif Bashir, Dr Abdullah, Dr Farasat, Dr Tahir and Dr Waqas involved in the assault on senior doctors was rejected by District and Sessions Judge Mehar Gul.

The court remarked that the assault on senior doctors recently by the YDA-affiliated had earned a bad name for the doctors which warranted that they should be dealt with sternly as doctors were being considered as messiahs for their pursuit to mitigate sufferings of the ailing humanity.
