8 junior doctors booked for assaulting patient in Gorakhpur

Gorakhpur : The police has registered an FIR against eight unidentified junior doctors of BRD Medical College for allegedly assaulting a patient and using derogatory language against his wife. The patient was assaulted when he asked for a discharge from the hospital said the police. The Gulriha police station inspector Sanjay Singh said “We have registered an FIR against eight doctors of BRD Medical College under IPC section 147 (rioting), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 504 (intentional insult), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 342 (wrongful confinement) on the basis of a complaint by the patient’s wife.”

The complainant, the wife of the patient Sandeep Singh said that her husband was admitted to the hospital after he complained of abdominal pain. She said on the next day her husband requested the medical team to discharge him. She said their request was denied and one of the junior doctors made unsavory remarks against her and her husband objected to the same.
