However, after Kumar consulted doctors at the district hospital on Saturday night, doctors refused to mention in official documents that he had sustained injury from gunshot. “Kumar had a minor injury, but was adamant that doctors should write the cause as gunshot in the official documents. When doctors refused, Kumar physically assaulted a ward boy. He also tore up the official register of the 108 ambulance and created ruckus for one-and-half hours,” said Dr K S Gupta, chief medical superintendent (CMS) at the district hospital. He added that the man probably wanted the wound to be termed a gunshot injury because he wanted to blame someone for attacking him.
A senior doctor who wished not to be named said, “There is a possibility that Kumar may have forced a junior staff to refer him to the district hospital by citing gunshot wound. As it was a simple injury, it would have been easily treated at the CHC.”
