Assam: On-duty Doctor assaulted by group of attendees

GUWAHATI: A doctor on duty was mercilessly beaten up by a group of attendees after a patient reportedly died.

The patient upon being brought to the hospital was allegedly found dead as per preliminary reports. Not accepting the doctor’s version, the reportedly angry attendees reigned blows on the doctor for medical negligence and even assaulted a female doctor. The junior doctor somehow managed to escape from the hospital and is now admitted in Nagaon civil hospital with injuries.

The Assam Medical Service Association have written to Hojai’s Deputy Commissioner Office condemning the attack on a junior doctor following a patient’s death who was suffering from COVID & pneumonia.
The medical association demand Assam govt to book these merciless culprits immediately.
