Mumbai: Veteran actors Shabana Azmi, Hema Malini and Rishi Kapoor have condemned the attack on medical professionals in Indore.
A five-member team from the health department had gone to Taatpatti Bakhal on Wednesday to quarantine relatives and acquaintances of a COVID-19 patient, when an unruly mob attacked them with stones, injuring two women doctors.
The video of the attack went viral on social media.
"Respect. Dr Trupti and Dr Raziya are true role models. And the behaviour of those who pelted them with stones is shameful and condemnable," Azmi said on Twitter.
Actor-turned-politician Hema Malini said,
Rishi Kapoor appealed to everyone to not resort to any kind of violence on the medical staff and police.
Actor Shilpa Shetty said instead of attacking the medical professionals one must come together to help them in the fight against the pandemic.
