An irate mob assaulted the doctor of a private clinic at Malur a couple of days ago, alleging negligence causing the death of a child. However the doctor has refuted the charge and has filed a complaint with the police.
Veerabhadra and Lakshmidevi of Chikka Iggalur village brought their two-month-old baby suffering from fever to Ramesh Clinic at Adarsha Nagar area in Malur town on Saturday afternoon. The doctor, Ramesh, asked them to take the child to a private hospital in Kolar as its condition was serious. The child died on the way to Kolar.
As news spread about the death, a mob from the village including the child’s relatives barged into the clinic in the night and some among them assaulted Dr. Ramesh. He lost some of his teeth due to the attack.
Dr. Ramesh and the parents filed complaints against each other with the Malur police.
