Jamia Nagar leader held for beating staff of New Friends Colony hospital

A local area leader, along with three other persons, have been arrested for allegedly manhandling and beating staff members of the Holy Family hospital in New Friends Colony of south east Delhi. Approximately, 30 people allegedly man-handled the staff and doctors at the medical facility.
According to police, the incident took place on Tuesday night but the matter was reported only on Wednesday morning. The scuffle took place when Ashu Khan (30) , a local leader of Jamia Nagar had a heated argument with the hospital staff over some issues related to the ongoing treatment of Khan's mother at the hospital. When the matter turned ugly, other staff members had to intervene to bring the situation under control.

On Tuesday night, after a compromise had been reached, Khan returned to the hospital with 30 people, who allegedly beat up and man-handled the staff. They also damaged hospital property. On Wednesday morning, when Khan's mother was discharged from the hospital, one of the staff members went to the police station and informed the police about the incident.

Police officials have arrested four persons, including the local leader, based on the complaint. The three other accused, who are yet to be arrested, have been identified as Mohammad Asif (25), Asaab(30) and Waiz (32). A senior police official who is part of investigations said, 'The argument started when Khan was forcing a guard to allow him to enter the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) to meet his mother. But as the visitors timing was over, the guard didn’t give him permission to do so. This angered Khan and  he started arguing violently.  

A case under sections 323, 341, 451 and 506 of Indian Penal Code has been registered at New Friends Colony police station. 'Further investigation is on,' the official added.
