A doctor at Shibpur Upazila Health Complex in Narsingdi allegedly beat a couple up for entering his chamber without permission Saturday afternoon.
The couple, Ilias Ahmed, 28, and his wife Sawrna Akter, 22, of Dattergaon village under Shibpur upazila, went to the hospital for treatment of their seven-month-old baby.
The victims and witnesses said that the couple submitted a token to enter the room of physician Siraj Uddin at the health complex at about 10:30am.
As the door of Siraj’s room had been closed for long and their sick baby was crying, the couple entered the room without permission and found that the doctor was gossiping and taking tea with two young ladies, the victims alleged.
They alleged that Siraj became furious seeing them and beat them up while the ailing baby was in the lap of its mother.
A number of hospital staff said that they as well as other patients rushed to the spot hearing the cries of the couple and rescued the couple from the clutch of the angry doctor.
Injured Ilias submitted a written complaint to Shibpur Upazila health officer Saiful Islam against Siraj and sought justice.
Saiful said that he had forwarded Ilias’ written complaint to the Narsingdi civil surgeon for taking necessary action.
Siraj could not be reached for comments about the allegations.
