Resident doctor assaulted by patient’s relatives in Dhule

Doctor beaten up by patient’s relatives allegedly due to delay in treatment at a hospital in Dhule on the night of 12 March

 The brutal incident took place on Sunday night at the Goverment Medical College (GMC) in Dhule when a patient was brought in with a head injury.
A resident doctor in Maharashtra’s Dhule region was brutally thrashed by a patient’s family after being asked to be taken to another centre since there was no neurosurgeon on duty on Monday. He asked them to take patient to another hospital due to the absence of an on-duty neurosurgeon.
As the doctor requested the patient’s family to take him to another centre, a mob of over 20 relatives attacked him. The brutal incident took place on Sunday night at the Goverment Medical College (GMC) in Dhule when a patient was brought in with a head injury.

Following the assault, the doctor suffered multiple injuries to his head, chest and abdomen area. He was also hit near the socket of the eye, on the orbital bone, which has affected his vision.

The doctor in question, Dr. Rohan Mhamunkar, is an orthopaedic and currently admitted in the ICU.
