Chhattisgarh: Jail Guard Slaps Resident Doctors At Raipur’s Ambedkar Hospital, FIR Registered

95

Raipur, February 22, 2021: A prison guard slapped junior doctors at Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar Memorial Hospital (affiliated JNM Medical College) in Raipur, alleging that he was made to go from one table to another for doing an MRI of a Naxalite.

The jail guard who came to the hospital from Dantewada for the MRI of an arrested Naxalite said that he was sent from one table to another from morning to afternoon. He lost his cool and slapped the doctor. He had brought the prisoner to get an MRI done but nobody gave him the right information. The jail guard started arguing with the hospital staff, slapping the technician and junior doctor who came to the rescue.

What followed was a ruckus in the hospital. There was a rush of doctors and hospital personnel. The police post in the hospital was cordoned off. The doctors stopped work. After a full day of uproar, an FIR was registered against the jail guard in the evening. Two policemen who were given duty at the post were also removed.

Shatrughan Oraon had reached Raipur in the morning with a prisoner jailed in a Naxal case from Dantewada. In a viral video, Shatrughan is seen saying that he reached the radiology department of Ambedkar Hospital but was sent to another place. Similarly, he was kept entangled all day.

Hospital management claims that Shatrughan Oraon attacked junior doctor Aman and doctor Manoj. At that time, Dr Ujjwal and Dr Kishore intervened. Shatrughan also pushed them. Due to the uproar, Vishnu Dutt, Dean of the Medical College and Vineet Jain, Superintendent of the Hospital, also reached there.

The junior doctors who had stopped working were also explained and on the other hand, the officers of the police department were demanded to take action in this whole matter.

City SP Lakhan Patle reached the hospital with the police team of Moudhapara police station. After about 3 hours, the matter subsided. After this incident, the hospital management has demanded from the police that the police should have armed security personnel in the hospital, medical college hospital premises and OPD should have police patrolling from time to time.
