According to a recent report by HT, the patient, who came to the doctor's clinic on December 24 for consultation, later came back with her relatives and allegedly manhandled the doctor's family. The patient had been undergoing diagnosis and treatment by the doctor
Recounting the incident from the scratch, the complainant told HT, "The patient had been complaining of vaginal bleeding for the past two months and was undergoing treatment at our clinic. She had been advised an ultrasound which was conducted on December 24, when she visited us. After studying the ultrasound, my mother (the doctor) advised her to get a DC (Dilation and Curettage) based on the findings of the ultrasound."
However, the next day they came back with other relatives and started misbehaving. In the process, the in-laws of the complainant got abused and sustained injuries, as described by the complainant.
She further added, "They claimed that they were associated with a prominent news channel and threatened to get the clinic shut down. They broke the windows of the clinic and tampered with the machines. My father-in-law tried to talk to them 7, but they kept misbehaving with us, after which we called the police."
