The Himachal Pradesh government on Thursday introduced an amendment bill in the assembly to ensure safety of doctors on duty in government hospitals and dispensaries by making the offence of assault non-bailable.

Health Minister Kaul Singh said the Himachal Pradesh Medical Officers Association demanded that the offence under the act should be cognizable and non-bailable. In view of the increased incidences of violence against medical officers on duty, it has been decided to make the offence cognizable and non-bailable, punishable with imprisonment up to three years, he added.

The bill is likely to be listed for debate and passing in the assembly on March 31.
