The incident happened when two teenage sisters went to Dr Haider for check-up at the Kothari Medical Centre. TOI reports that Dr Ghulam Hiader was on emergency duty when two women walked in and demanded an injury report for one of them. On examining, Haider said that there was no such injury and hence refused to oblige.
“The two sisters were talking to me when suddenly this man entered my chamber and started disturbing me. When I protested he threatened me and went out. He returned with five or six other men,” Dr Haider, who was undergoing treatment for his injuries at the same hospital alleged.
