Nashik: Doctor beaten up, hospital equipment vandalised after patient's death, 3 arrested
Nashik - The city police on Tuesday arrested three people for allegedly beating a doctor of a private hospital on Ambad Link Road area of the city following the death of a woman patient.
Last week, a woman from the Panchavati area was admitted to a private hospital here for treatment and she died during treatment on Monday.
After her death, the swab sample test report of the deceased woman for the coronavirus came negative, hence some of her relatives went to the hospital, seeking explanation for her death.

Then, Dr Dinesh Patil went to the Ambad police station and lodged a complaint against the suspects.
Based on the complaint, police scoured through close circuit TV camera footage in the hospital and traced the suspects to the Panchavati area of the city.
