'A 250-strong mob in the Indian state of Assam has brutally beaten and killed an elderly physician, prompting a medical union to call in a strike. The doctor was accused of failing to save a tea worker as he was out of hospital.
The Indian Medical Association, that largest association of physicians and medical staff in India with over 3 million members, has called in a strike for Tuesday after 75-year-old Deven Dutta, a practicing physician in the northeastern state of Assam, renowned for its tea production, was maimed by a 250-strong crowd and later died due to his injuries.
Gruesome scenes played out at a hospital inside a sprawling tea estate on Saturday, shortly after a female worker was admitted to the medical facility. The 33-year-old was in critical condition and in need of urgent medical assistance. However, at the time, neither Dutta, nor a pharmacist could be found, and the woman was left in the care of a nurse, who administered saline. That did not help to save the ailing tea estate employee, who died shortly afterwards.
It’s unclear what prompted her demise and if anything else could have been done to avert the grim outcome. However, the woman’s fellow workers wasted no time in blaming the death on the doctor, who did not show up at the hospital before 3:30pm local time, more than three hours after the sick employee had been admitted.
As he did arrive, dozens of irate workers pummeled the 75-year-old, beating him almost to his death and locking him up in a closet in a hospital room, so he could not receive the much-needed medical help himself.'
