QUETTA: Another doctor of the Bolan Medical College (BMC) was kidnapped on Wednesday, two days after surgeon Dr Din Mohammad Bangulzai was released by his kidnappers.

Dr Ghulam Rasool was a psychologist at BMC and was returning home when he was kidnapped.

Earlier on Sunday, Dr Bangulzai had been kidnapped by unknown assailants from the Ganji Dori near Lak Pass in district Mastung, but he reached home safely on Monday evening.

According to family sources, the kidnappers initially demanded Rs50 million in ransom for the surgeon’s release, however negotiations brought down the ransom amount to Rs8 million.

The Pakistan Medical Association (PMA) had also called a strike in the Out Patient Departments of all state-run hospitals demanding the government authorities to secure release of Dr Bangulzai. The strike was called off after the doctor's release.

There is no way to differ with you but unfortunate aspect is that, these activities have support from the provincial stake holders either in the form of silence from Police or hidden support to culprits. Martial Law... Yes, when we have to chose between bad (Martial Law) and worst (so called our democracy) then we should chose "bad".

Dr Ghulam Rasool is a renowned psychiatrist. Two years back his house was barged by the dacoits and every thing was looted from house. The dacoits were arrested but as usual the courts released them. Now the same person has been kidnapped. As observed by the supreme court , there is complete breakdown of constitution. People are praying for the come backof Martial Law. This is beyond the courts and the corrupt democratic setup to run the State.
