Doctor at Chandigarh refuses to treat Kashmiri patient

Chandigarh: “You throw stones at our security forces and then come here for treatment” was a doctor’s response when he was approached by a Kashmiri patient at the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research at Chandigarh.
Nasreena Malik, a resident of Kashmir who is suffering from internal carotid artery aneurysm, was brought to the neurosurgery department at the PGIMER by her son Javaid Ahmad Malik.
The doctor allegedly told them, “You throw stones at our security forces there (Kashmir) and come here for treatment.”
Malik said he does not know the name of the doctor.
“He was fine until he saw the prescription card of hospitals in Kashmir … He threw them away,” Malik alleged.
The patient was advised to undergo angiography and was told that the treatment would cost Rs 15 lakh.
Taking a serious note of the incident, PGIMER director Prof Jagat Ram has ordered a probe into it.
“We have sought a report from the head of department. If the doctor is found guilty, action will be taken against him,” he said. PTI

    Very bad doctor has nothing to do with religion or political borders. He treats a human being not Hindu or Muslim Sikh or Christian.
