Bandipora, Sept 24: As soon as some sections of the district hospital Bandipora were shifted to newly constructed building in Nusoo locality after more than a decade, some unknown persons damaged the fencing wall late Wednesday night.
An official said on the intervening night of Wednesday and Thursday, unknown persons came and broke down the fencing wall of the new hospital.
They said the entire hospital staff, present there, was frightened when some unidentified persons started breaking down the wall.
A health official said that they have informed the higher authorities about this incident. “Maybe those who have broken down this wall want to build an entry gate for their own convenience,” he said.
However, it has been learnt that there had been a land dispute between a local resident of Nusoo and the administration for some years now, due to which the fencing wall of the hospital yard was damaged.
Assistant commissioner revenue Bandipora, Reyaz Ahmad said that he has received a complaint regarding the incident and had asked the concerned tehsildar to visit the spot personally. “If anyone will be found guilty, he will be dealt with strictly,” he said.
A few days ago some sections including ophthalmology, general OPD and dental clinic were shifted to the new district hospital building after more than a decade since its construction was started.
However, the emergency sections including general theatre and Gynae section will continue to function in the old district hospital building. (KNO)
