  1. He should be handed over to the public let the public handle him. I am sure they will beat him to death. Such a person is bringing ill name to our doctor\’s fraternity. I would garland him with chapals & beat him black & blue if I were given a chance. I would spit on his face. He is a shameless, nonsense & idiot person. He must be criminally prosecuted & stringent action should be taken against him. Such a bloody greedy nonsense should be dismissed from service immediately

  2. Why is that idiot not satisfied with his legitimate pay? If it was with the consent of his wife, she also deserves a punishment. I\’m sorry his children are put to a hardship but they also need to be taught the good values of life.
