Mumbai: Dr Rohan Mhamunkar (35), an orthopaedic doctor who was brutally beaten up by irate relatives of an accident victim at a government hospital in Dhule on Sunday night, could lose vision in his left eye.





Dr Mhamunkar, a Mumbai resident, recently took up a job at Shri Bhausaheb Hire Government Medical College and Hospital, Dhule, where the incident occurred.

According to Dr Mhamunkar, he was hit “with rods, table, chair and scissors”. He suffered several injuries on his chest and back and was unconscious after the assault.

According to Dr S Satish Kumar, dean of Hire Medical College, Dr Mhamunkar has been discharged and he has decided to take treatment in Mumbai, where he resides.

Following the incident, the Dhule police arrested nine people, including Pradeep Vetale who later committed suicide in lockup.

The accident victim, Laskhar, was a pillion rider on a two-wheeler. It was when Lashkar was taken to the government hospital, around 11pm on Sunday, that his relatives got angry with Dr Mhamunkar and assaulted him. Laskar was then taken to a private hospital, but he died within 24 hours.

The person (Vetale) riding the two-wheeler, who was among those arrested for the assault on the doctor, committed suicide in the lockup on Tuesday.
