Resident Doctors' Association (RDA) has extended the support to Dr. Mohammad Azeemullah Malik and Dr. Obaid Imtiyazul Haque after they were terminated from Jawaharlal Nehru hospital (JNMCH) in Aligarh from their services in reaction to their contradictory statement regarding Forensic science laboratory report in Hathras gang-rape.. RDA has demanded the University authorities that if they will not revoke the orders of the doctors, they will go on hunger strike.
Dr. Hamza Malik, president Resident Doctors' Association said, "Both the doctors have been performing their duties diligently and sincerely even at the time of crises."
