Dr Govinda KC transferred to TUTH from Trauma Centre

KATHMANDU: Dr Govinda KC, who was admitted to the Trauma Centre against his will, has now been transferred to Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital.

Earlier today, Dr KC who had been staging a hunger strike in Jumla was taken to National Trauma Centre after he landed in Kathmandu on Tuesday.

He had then stated that the move to take him to the Trauma Centre instead of TUTH where he intended to continue his Satyagraha was an act of kidnapping and that he has been held hostage at the directive of PM KP Sharma Oli and the Dean and Director of TUTH.

The Satyagrahi had taken a flight to the capital city to continue his strike in Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital (TUTH), Maharajgunj. However, police apparently diverted him to the Trauma Centre instead of allowing passage to the TUTH.

Police say KC taken to Trauma Centre as per doctors' advice

Following a wave of protest against the act of police against Dr Govinda KC, the Nepal Police took to Twitter to clarify that they had but helped the transportation of Dr KC to Trauma Centre at the behest of doctors.

"Our attention has been drawn towards the people's opinions. However, we would like to inform that the police only helped transportat Dr KC to the trauma centre on advice of the doctors, keeping in mind his health condition."
