PUNE: Strong protests by medical professionals against recent attacks on doctors seems to have borne little fruit.
Gaikwad said police have invoked the act because the suspects had attempted to attack the doctors in the hospital. “The section has the provision of three-year imprisonment with fine,” he said.
Jadhav told TOI that the patient, Manda Khaladkar (58), was admitted to the hospital on March 28 for loose motions. In the early hours of Wednesday, her condition deteriorated. “The woman died around 3am despite best possible care provided by our team of doctors,” he added.
