A resident doctor at Niloufer Hospital was allegedly attacked on Monday night. Dr. Pratyusha, in her complaint to Nampally police, alleged that attendants of a 11-year-old patient misbehaved, abused and physically attacked her and did not allow her to perform duties.

On Monday night, a child suffering from seizures was rushed to the hospital. In her complaint, the resident doctor (student pursuing super specialisation course in medicine) Pratyusha stated that when she removed a bag from a bed and placed it on the ground to make space for the emergency case, the attendants verbally abused and physically assaulted her and her colleagues.

Based on her complaint, Nampally police registered cases under IPC Sections 332 (Voluntarily causing hurt to deter public servant from duty), 504 (Intentional insult to provoke breach of peace), 506 (Punishment for criminal intimidation), and Section 4 of Medical Services Act.

This is the second time a doctor at Niloufer Hospital was attacked. The last case was reported in the month of February.

On Tuesday, junior doctors (students from MBBS to PG courses) from the hospital took their grievances to the notice of Director of Medical Education Dr. K Ramesh Reddy and Superintendent of the hospital Dr. V. Murali Krishna.
