Kolkata: Chaos had spread at the Nil Ratan Sircar Medical College and Hospital (NRS) on Monday over accusations of careless treatment to patients.
On Sunday night, a man was heavily injured due to clash between two parties in Beliaghata. He was admitted to the emergency ward of the NRS hospital. But the family members of the injured man accused the junior doctors of starting the treatment with a big delay. This resulted in a quarrel between the junior doctors and the patient’s family which lead to a tussle between them.
On the other hand, the junior doctors have accused the patient’s family of beating them up. Three junior doctors got injured due to the tussle. They have lodged a complaint against the patient’s family at the Entally police station.
The police arrested 9 people for hurling attacks at the junior doctors and have been booked under several sections of the Indian Penal Code. After this incident, the junior doctors staged a protest demanding their safety.
