For the treatment fee of 377 yuan, the sick man in India was killed alive by four or five hospital employees
According to Indian media reports on July 3, an Indian man went to the hospital to see a doctor. He was struggling to be killed alive because of a dispute with the hospital staff about the treatment fee of 4000 rupees (about 377 yuan). Currently, the local police are investigating this case.
According to reports, 44-year-old Sultan Khan came from the village of Iglas in Aligarh, India. On July 2, local time, he went to a local private hospital for examination with his nephew Chaman and several other relatives due to physical discomfort. Later, Sudan was informed that he needed to be hospitalized for treatment.
Charman said that before going through the hospitalization procedure, He once asked doctors how much treatment they needed, and made it clear that they should continue treatment only if they can afford it. The staff replied that they would inform the Sudan of the specific cost after completing the ultrasound examination. However, the hospital required him to pay 5,000 rupees (about RMB 471) for the ultrasound before the ultrasound examination. Afterwards, the hospital staff told Chaman that the hospital’s hospitalization fee was around 4000-5000 rupees per day.
Charman said :”We can’t afford the money, so we asked for the uncle to be discharged. When we paid 5,000 rupees for the preparation for discharge, a staff member approached us and asked us to pay another 4,000 rupees for the treatment.” Chaman Tell the hospital administrators that they had already paid 200 rupees for treatment when they first arrived at the hospital, so the 4000 rupees would be unreasonable, and they would not be able to pay that much. When they were about to leave the hospital, Sudan and their families were stopped by a hospital employee.
Charman said :”My uncle was in poor health, so I asked the staff to let him go. But they did not give in and started to beat him. A few meters away in front of the hospital, four or five people came to beat us. The uncle suffered a fatal one. He was dead, and we were all wounded.”
Abisek, the police of the local police station, said that the police had called for surveillance video on the day of the incident. Surveillance footage showed that an unidentified man beat up a Sudanese family member sitting on a motorcycle, and others were also attacked by hospital staff. When the fighting became serious, several female relatives of Sudan fled the scene. Abisik said:”The police station has submitted a preliminary investigation report. After the autopsy report is released, we will conduct a further investigation.”
