A doctor was badly beaten up by the relatives of a patient who died while undergoing a treatment. Dr Ajay Bansal, owner of Bansal Hospital, has received 46 stitches on his head and also broken his nose.
After the attack, he was rushed to SMS Hospital where more than 400 doctors gathered as the news of the attack spread.
Resident of Jaipur’s Adarsh Nagar area, 55-year-old Ratan Lal Saini was admitted in Bansal Hospital after he complained of chest pain. After he died while undergoing treatment, the doctors of Bansal Hospital alleged that the family members went on rampage and attacked Bansal with sharp-edged objects.
However Ratan Lal Saini’s son, Virender Singh, has lodged an FIR claiming negligence on doctor’s part while providing treatment to the patient.
After the incident, hundreds of private hospitals in Jaipur decided to remain non-functional at least till noon on May 20, 2017 to protest the alleged attack. Out of the 450 private hospitals, nearly 300 remained shut as reported by ThePinkCityPost.com .
Jaipur police has booked Bansal hospital’s doctors for negligence and also registered an FIR against the family members apparently involved in the attack.
