” On this very day dedicated to Doctors celebrated as National Doctors Day’ ‘two of our colleagues from Hindu Rao Hospital were assaulted brutally. A terminally sick patient on hemodialysis(Not undergoing Hemodialysis and Prescribed treatment) and comorbidities was brought to ER In critical condition.
Working with limited resources and a threat to their life doctors could not save the patient despite their best possible efforts. That angered the attendants of the patients and they attacked the doctors. Emergency health care services were brought to halt by the deadly attack on doctors, endangering lives of critically sick patients requiring urgent medical care. The assaulters walked unscathed after the attack and had no remorse of assaulting a young budding doctor putting his lives in service of mankind,” the association representatives stated.
“We stand by our fellows from Hindu Rao Hospital demanding action against the culprits and beefing up of security at hospitals,” the release added

Earlier this month, a similar incident took place in Kolkata, West Bengal. Junior doctors at the state-run NRS Medical College were allegedly assaulted by the relatives of a 75-year-old patient after he died due to alleged negligence.

After the incident of violence, healthcare services were disrupted in West Bengal for nearly a week.

  1. it is my sincere belief that doctors should be beaten in the harshest manner possible. As a mbbs student myself i daily see how these JR and SR\’s conduct themselves in an arrogant \’I AM SUPER INTELLIGENT\’ manner. They think of farmers as inferior persons whereas they themselves study books written by europeans with zero self innovation. what a bunch of self righteous rats.

  2. K. Ur wish will be fulfilled. Send ur details.

    Our country deserves Tantrik Babas and magic Babas, not doctors.

  5. This country is getting sick day by day. Beating a doctor wont save your terminally ill patient. Doctor does everything best possible to save his patient. There is a difference between a doctor and a quack. This shows height of inhumanity and illiteracy in this country. Shame!!
