The incident took place when a training session was going on for the ANMs. A trainee told her colleagues that the doctor “tried to eve-tease” her, following which the ANMs reported the matter to the hospital’s civil surgeon, who summoned the doctor. However, when the accused doctor was trying to put forward his version of the incident to the civil surgeon, the ANMs started demanding immediate action against him, accusing him of molestation.
The incident took a grievous turn after 60 ANMs entered the room where the civil surgeon was speaking to their representative and started beating the accused doctor. However, the accused doctor managed to flee the spot.
