The Resident Doctor Jignez Prit Bahadur Sharma (27) of Mayo Hospital was on duty at Ward No. 8 on Wednesday. Around 5 pm, a patient named Rajani Gaurav Malik was referred to the ward and she was brought to the ward by four of her relatives including a woman. Subsequently, the Resident Doctor Sharma told them that only one relative is allowed with the patient and others should wait outside the ward. Enraged by the doctor’s directive, the woman relative and two others started abusing and manhandling him with one of them holding collar of the stunned doctor. The three accused relatives even held out life threats to Dr Sharma for his ‘order’ to them to leave the ward. After the outrageous incident, the accused vanished from the scene.
