Bihar medical community panics as doctor and wife kidnapped

BACKcoupDr Pankaj Kumar Gupta a prominent physician and his businesswoman wife Shubhra Gupta were returning to their home in Gaya district when they were allegedly kidnapped from the busy Grand Trunk Road.

The incident sent a fresh wave of fear over the medical community as the state saw some 39 leading doctors kidnapped for ransom by gangs during the previous RJD regime, with whose support the incumbent Janata Dal (United) government is ruling.

The state government has asked police to recover the victims but investigating police remain clueless and say the victims were apparently picked up by a professional inter-state gang

The medical community however is restive over the delay and have threatened to go on strike if the victims are not recovered in the next 48 hours.
