The accused Md Snewaj, Adil Hadun, Adil Shekh, Md Yusuf and Md Badal have been given interim bail by the court, exactly 20 days after they allegedly beat up two medics in the hospital premises after an 85-year-old patient died of cardiac arrest in the hospital.

The Medical Dialogues Team had earlier reported that following the death of a 75-year-old patient at the institute, a patient’s family and their supporting mob brutally attacked the treating doctors accusing them of medical negligence. the mob of around 150 persons arrived at the medical facility on bikes armed with bricks, sticks and glass shards and charged against the doctors and dragged the hapless junior doctors to the main gate and assaulted them heinously. Then the mob allegedly started raining bricks at the doctors. The attack dented the skull of junior doctor, Paribaha Mukherjee, almost taking his life.

    Very frustrating indeed .We should not expect fair treatment to doctors any where in this country ,much less in West Bengal regimen of Mamta.
