Violence Against Doctors

The MP dragged Dr G V Madhukeshwar out of the ward and thrashed and kicked him. When Dr Balachandra Bhat and employee Rahul Musharkar tried to save Dr Madhukeshwar, the MP assaulted them as well. They suffered injuries and deep cuts on the throat, head and face, reports ToI.

When the doctors tried to file a police complaint, the MP allegedly threatened them with a counter-complaint. Later, the hospital administration and the MP arrived at a compromise.
