The mob is reported to have vandalized large sections of the hospital including the emergency room, the hallway, and even the minor OT.
The case was of one Parvez, age 40 years, who met with a truck accident and was rushed to Dr. Baba Saheb Ambedkar Hospital. The patient is reported to have suffered massive blood loss and was brought to the hospital in a state of shock . Owing to his feeble condition and high blood loss, the patient finally succumbed to his injuries at around 9.30 pm at night. By that time, a crowd of 30-40 attendants had gathered at the hospital. Alleging the doctor’s fault in unable to prevent the blood loss, the crowd began creating ruckus and vandalizing the hospital property. Seeing the crowd in action, the security personnel deployed at the hospital fled. The doctors and medical staff also ran away fearing their security, leaving the mob to its vandalism. Fortunately, no hospital staff was attacked/injured in the process.
The mob is reported to have completely vandalized the emergency room as well as operations theater. Doors, windows, hospital property etc, at the hallway has also been broken.
