The incident occurred when a patient faced Post-Partum Hemorrhage (PPH) after normal vaginal delivery. The patient condition started deteriorating and the on-duty doctor tried to manage the situation. Meanwhile one of the attendant came inside and started shouting at the doctor and staff. The attendant called around 50-70 armed with weapons who barged into the labour room and assaulted the doctors present.
