Karwar (Karnataka): Uttara Kannada BJP MP Anant Kumar Hegde reportedly assaulted two doctors and a worker of TSS Hospital in Sirsi on Tuesday. He was angry that they didn’t attend to his mother Lalita Hegde, who had suffered a leg fracture, on priority.
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.
