Indian Police Arrest 24 People for Beating Doctor Inside Coronavirus Ward


Police in northeastern India arrested 24 people this week for “brutally” assaulting a doctor inside a hospital after a Chinese coronavirus patient died under the physician’s care, the Press Trust of India (PTI) reported Friday.

Himanta Biswa Sarma, the Chief Minister of Assam — the Indian state in which the incident occurred — said “24 people were arrested for allegedly assaulting the doctor at the [medical] facility,” according to PTI.

At least 24 people, including women, launched a prolonged physical assault on Dr. Seuj Kumar Senapati inside the Udali Covid Care Center in the Assam town of Hojai on June 1 after a critically ill coronavirus patient died in his care.

“Immediately after that, the relatives [of the deceased patient] and a group of people known to the [coronavirus] victim arrived there and started beating up the doctor,” Hojai Superintendent of Police Barun Purkayastha told PTI.
