  1. No attendant would want to harm that doctor who treats their patient…. In this case it seems treating doc surely must have been negligent and arrogant even after causing death to innocent patient… There is always two sides of coin… doctors are not pure from sin by default… Every time patients only are not guilty.

  2. \”doc surely must have been negligent and arrogant\”
    You have arrived at this conclusion ONLY on the basis of the fact that the doctor was assaulted!
    This means that
    1. It is alright to take the law in your own hand and hit the doctor (Maybe even kill him) if he is negligent/ arrogant
    2. Any time a doctor is attacked, it is his own fault…
    Congrats, there is now no need to have Police & Courts in cases of Doctors being assaulted by the Public.

  3. peoples are loosing there humanity, and expect that doctor should work for humanity. there is already scarcity of health services and doctors, but people are cutting the same tree on which they are sitting. a very worst condition is coming for health services…..

  4. Critical situation for medical fraternity to practise now a days. We dont know when govt/law will take firm decision on this issue of assault on doctors/hospitals.
