Deceased kin's relatives thrash doc in SCB; medicos on dharna

Cuttack, Oct 25: Tension ran high and health services hit in the SCB Medical College and Hospital as doctors sat on a dharna in the medical premises this morning.

According to reports, some relatives of a patient, who died of some disease last night while undergoing treatment, thrashed a treating doctor severely alleging that their kin died due to his negligence.
