A 50-year-old corona victim, who died in Gandhi Hospital on Wednesday is among 9 fatalities. However, the brother of the deceased, who was being treated in the same ward, attacked the doctors. This caused tension in Gandhi hospital's corona ward. On alerting about the incident, police hesitated to enter the corona ward. However, CP Anjani Kumar reached the venue and mended the situation. Also, action was taken to prevent any such undesirable events.

Superintendent of Gandhi Hospital Shravan said that the incident was brought to the notice of the Minister of Health. The attack on doctors during such a difficult time is not right, he added.
