Later, an argument broke out between the patient and the doctor identified as Sailesh Kumar Dora at the hospital. Following which, Dora thrashed the patient.

"When I went to the hospital with severe stomach pain, no doctor was there to attend to me. When I asked the security guard, he said the doctor has gone to the washroom. After some time, someone from the medical staff injected two injections and I was on a stretcher. At that time, the doctor suddenly came to me and started beating me like anything," alleged the victim, Mukesh Naik.

The patient and local people also staged a road blockade on Monday demanding the arrest of the doctor. Two different complaints have been filed by the doctor and patient in the local police station.

"We have registered a case and detained the physician on this incident. Further investigation is on," said Dhiraj Kumar Chopdar, sub-divisional police officer (SDPO), Dharamgarh.
