On Sunday night, June 27, doctors of Mumbai’s Sion hospital took out a candle march in front of the hospital premises demanding justice for the healthcare worker providing service relentlessly since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. Many people were seen gathering at the spot.
This came days after two brothers allegedly assaulted a doctor at civic-run Sion Hospital here after their father died during treatment last week, said an official.
According to reports, the accused Rajesh Gupta (36) and his brother Roshan Gupta (39) roughed up the doctor following the death of their father during treatment on Friday afternoon, June 25.
A case was registered against them under Section 353 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) for assault and preventing a government servant from performing his duty and under the Maharashtra Medicare Service Persons and Medicare Service Institutions (Prevention of Violence and Damage or Loss to Property) Act 2010.
As per local police officials, they are closely monitoring the situation. Meanwhile, a team of police officials has been sent to Nashik to nab the brothers, the official said. Further probe in this matter is underway.
