A government hospital doctor was allegedly beaten up by the brother of Chhattisgarh Assembly Deputy Speaker and his friends in Janjgir-Champa district over providing medical treatment to an injured Bharatiya Janata Party worker, the police said on Thursday.

Angered over the August 25 incident in Champa town, which promoted the administration to order a probe and Chief Minister Raman Singh to assure appropriate action, government hospital doctors in the district went on an indefinite strike demanding the arrest of the accused.

The Government District Hospital doctors lodged a complaint alleging that Shekhar Chandel and his associates thrashed Dr. Pratap Singh Kurre on late Sunday night, Janjgir-Champa Superintendent of Police Sheikh Arif Hussain said.

Shekhar is the brother of Deputy Speaker Narayan Chandel, a BJP MLA from Janjgir-Champa constituency. The incident was allegedly recorded in the hospital’s CCTV camera.
