Hyderabad: doctor beaten up by family of man who died of Covid-19

Apr 02, 2020 07:19 IST

The family of a man who died of Covid-19 attacked a doctor and vandalised hospital property at Hyderabad's Gandhi Hospital. The 49-year-old patient was admitted a week ago and had underlying medical conditions. Following his death, his three relatives, who were also positive and were being treated in the same ward, attacked the on-call doctor and broke the windows. The doctors had earlier asked for additional security as the family had been aggressive. State Health Minister Eatala Rajender condemned the incident and promised strict action against the perpetrators. Telangana DGP also issued a statement and said no one indulging in such acts of vandalism will be spared.
