Pune: In a reported incident coming from the state-run Sassoon General Hospital in Pune, a mob attacked 3 guards on duty at the hospital premise. They were allegedly beaten up by a mob and left in injury.
The guards of duty were having dinner when they received the news that a mob has gathered in front of ward numbers 23 and 24. The wards were on the third floor of the hospital, and the guards after hearing the news immediately rushed to the spot.
