A clash has been reported at Shri Krishna Medical College and Hospital in Muzaffarpur, Bihar on Friday wherein more than 12 people were reportedly injured and about 10 vehicles including three ambulances set ablaze.
Urmila Devi, 45, a resident of Sheohar was advised on Thursday night by the doctors to have blood tests on her admission as she was anaemic. But relatives of the patient pressurised the doctor on duty to first prescribe medicines to her, to which doctor refused. Thereafter, the relatives took her to another hospital, police said.
However, some of her relatives went back to the hospital to show their anger towards them. This resulted into a heated argument and the junior doctors then beat up a local ambulance driver who was supporting patient’s relatives.
According to police, the driver then called several villagers who beat up junior doctors and torched vehicles. Now, video footage is being examined by the police to identify goons. So far, no arrest has been made in this case, Patna SSP Vivek Kumar said.
