The police recently booked a 40-year-old woman for allegedly assaulting a doctor at Sion Hospital on Monday.
The incident took place after Dr Pravin Govind Shilkande, 24, declared the woman’s mother dead during treatment.
According to police, Satnam Chohan’s 70-year-old mother was undergoing treatment at Sion Hospital.
On Monday around 3pm, her mother was declared dead. “Chohan got emotional and started pushing Shilkande, insisting that her mother was still alive and demanding that he check her properly,” said an officer from the Sion police station.
“Shilkande said that she got aggressive and started assaulting him,” he added.
