The authorities at the PGIMER have ordered a probe into the alleged misbehavior of the doctor.

Nasreena Malik, a resident of Kashmir who is suffering from internal carotid artery aneurysm, was brought to the to the neurosurgery department at the PGIMER by her son Javaid Ahmad Malik.

The doctor allegedly told them, “You throw stones at our security forces there (Kashmir) and come here for treatment.”

Malik said he did not know the name of the doctor.

“He was fine until he saw the prescription card of hospitals in Kashmir … He threw them away,” Malik alleged.

The patient was advised to undergo angiography and told that the treatment would cost Rs 15 lakh.

Taking a serious note of the incident, PGIMER director Prof Jagat Ram has ordered a probe into it.

“We have sought a report from the head of department. If the doctor is found guilty, action will be taken against him,” he said.

  1. Arrogant doctor denied patient to treat and also thrown patients documents… shame….that doc must be debarred from practice medicine immediately by council upon suo moto cognizence. Also he should be declare unfit for work rather mentally sick…

  2. Doctor denied treatment to patient and thrown away patients documents must be announced mentally sick and debarred from practice on immediate basis by council by taking suo moto cognizance…..

    As a doctor he should not have said so and should be punished. But he is not only a doctor but also an Indian
    He is not a robot. He has a mind. He should at the same time hailed and rewarded for his patriotic feeling endangering his career

  4. Is this the patriotism my dear brother ?
    Patriotism is that our heart should be paining to see the condition of masses in all over India and trying to relieve them from their suffering

  5. Truth is too bitter when it comes to Kashmir valley. Only Abdullahs, Muftis r cleanest ppl. The politicians of J&K (muzzies) r d biggest traitors who take money from P0rkistan and eat at our expense but sing songs 4 P0rkistan. Though as patient, v sud welcome them asd v do 2 Jeelani old traitor.

  6. U shd change ur name to cybil politician and when u gonna leave practice medicine and join politics…as u admire it alot

    tribute to oath May 10, 2017, 8:42 pm

    Biggest problem is most of doctors have forgotton their hippocratic oath which they took before beginning of their career. For a doctor his patient is only a patient first..nothing more..he is after getting cured whatever he is… A doctor should never forget that phrase..(patient first) and he should never deny to treat him…if he deny to treat any patient for anynreason that doctor should start any other DHANDHAA and leave this noble profession immidiately….

  8. Hippocratic Oath is debunked now in most Western nations. Hippocrates was a Greek fellow coz EU those days was enslaved by Greek. Hence Hippocrates was worshipped. Now West have lost love 4 him. He is now a vestige of colonialism 4 them as British r 4 us.
