Trainee doctor gets 2-month suspension for roughing up pharmacist at NRS

Kolkata: A post-graduate trainee (PGT) has been suspended for two months after he allegedly heckled a pharmacist at NRS Medical College and Hospital.

The decision was taken by the Health department on the basis of a report submitted by a probing committee constituted earlier in this regard.

The PGT has been accused of beating up a pharmacist inside the hospital promises on September 3. The pharmacists at the hospital have since threatened to go on a movement, demanding the arrest of the accused doctor.

The victim was at the outdoor section on the day of the incident, when the accused doctor, who is a trainee at the surgery department, went there and demanded some medicines without prescription.

The victim refused to do so and asked the doctor to produce prescription. The accused allegedly started hurling expletives at him and demanded an explanation as to why he was refusing a doctor.

It was alleged that the doctor later beat up the pharmacist. The victim, along with other pharmacists, registered a complaint with the hospital officials. The hospital authorities also informed the matter to the police.

The pharmacists had also staged a protest demonstration demanding arrest of the doctor and threatened to take out a protest rally from the hospital to Dharmatala.
