Doctor Allegedly Refused To Treat A Kashmiri Patient For This Reason

Published on 9 May, 2017 at 11:12 pm By

A doctor in Chandigarh’s PGI allegedly refused to treat a Kashmiri woman, Nasreena Mallik, because of the way soldiers are treated in the valley.

Mallik and her son had sought an appointment with Dr Manoj Tiwari who is a neurological surgeon at PGI. Mallik had suffered from an intracranial aneurysm and had come to Chandigarh from Srinagar for consultation about a surgery. The family said they left the hospital after the misbehavior of the doctor and misinformation about the cost of the treatment.

Nasreena’s son, Javed Mallik, said that they aren’t sure if the doctor in the cabin who misbehaved with them was in fact Dr Tiwari. He commented,

I don’t know who the doctor was… He was fine until he saw the prescription cards of hospitals in Kashmir… he threw them away and said, “You throw stones at our security forces in the Valley and come here to seek treatment”.

Javed Mallik, a shopkeeper from Srinagar, also said that the surgery costs around Rs. 80,000 while they were told it would cost them Rs. 15 lakh. The doctor also suggested that they should go to AIIMS, Delhi.



 

Dr Jagat Ram, PGIMER Director, commented,

We have been treating thousands of patients from J&K and all the other states. Such an incident has never happened here. This has been brought to my notice and I shall get the matter investigated.

Neither Nasreena nor Javed has lodged any official complaint.
