NHM Employees Lathicharged

JAMMU

Several employees, including females, working under National Health Mission were injured after police lathi charged the protesting employees at Indira Chowk who were marching towards civil secretariat Jammu to draw attention towards their demands.

On the other hand, the National Health Mission Employees Association representatives today continued their fast-unto-death for the third consecutive day, even as more of their colleagues joined the hunger strike.

The protests at Press Club Jammu continued for the 29th day today while a huge rally was taken out towards the civil secretariat which was stopped by police at Indira Chowk and lathi charged, leaving several of them injured.
