JnK: Inquiry launched against doctor for allegedly slapping patient's kin
Baramulla: An inquiry has been launched against a doctor for allegedly slapping a patient's kin, who misbehaved with the medical practitioner on being asked to wait for a few minutes.
This came after an altercation broke out between the doctor, identified as a surgeon attached to Public Health Center (PHC), Kunzar in the Tangmarag area of North Kashmir, Baramulla district, and the patient's attendant, following which the Block Medical Officer (BMO) initiated an investigation in the matter.
However, BMO Kunzar, Dr. Ruqaya holds the view that the doctor might be encouraged to do so by the misbehavior of the attendant. She also added that the investigation is still going on and if the doctor is found to be guilty, strict action will be taken against him and he can face serious consequences of his actions.
The incident took place on Saturday morning.
