Disabled woman's hubby dies after doctors’ thrashing

A 32-year-old man was allegedly thrashed to death by a group of doctors at the Rao Tula Ram Memorial Hospital in Jaffarpur Kalan area. After victim Sonu Maniram’s death on Monday, his family members approached police claiming that the doctors thrashed him on the hospital premises on Sunday evening after which his health detoriated which led to his death.

Police have sent the body for autopsy and have initiated a probe. The hospital authorities had also made a PCR call alleging misbehaviour on part of the family members, said sources.

Sonu’s nephew Vishal said, “Sonu, 32, had gone to the Rao Tula Ram Hospital on Sunday afternoon as his wife Radhika, who is physically handicapped, was unwell.

“While Radhika was being treated Sonu was running out of patience seeing his ailing wife screaming at the hospital to which the authorities objected. Vishal alleged that the doctors took him away to a cabin where he was thrashed mercilessly.

“After he came out of the room he had shoes marks on his body. Later a police officer also came and slapped him. If he was misbehaving then they should have thrown him out of the hospital or called police but they shouldn’t have thrashed him,” said the victim’s 20-year-old nephew.

Radhika was later discharged in the evening. When Sonu reached home he complained of severe stomach pain after which he was first rushed to a health centre in Najafgarh during midnight and then to Rao Tula Ram Hospital in the wee hours of Monday, said family sources.

“Doctors gave him injections and later stated that there is an internal injury and he needs to be operated for which he was referred to Deen Dayal Upadhayay Hospital but before he could be operated he passed away,” said Vishal.

Sonu is survived by his wife and two minor children. The family demanded that strict action be taken against the accused men and since she has no support now she should be given compensation.

“We have received a complaint from the family members and hospital authorities too. We are probing the incident and waiting for the autopsy report,” said Santosh Kumar Meena, Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police 1 (Dwarka). )
