GUWAHATI, Nov 16 - The staff of the Hayat Hospital today staged protest against yesterday�s ransacking of hospital properties by an irate mob and vehemently condemned the incident.
The hospital staff wore black badges as a mark of protest and organised a meeting in which they made a fervent plea to civil society not to condone such acts by unruly people.
This was stated in a press release issued by the executive director of the Hayat Hospital, Dr Anjan Kr Saikia.
It may be mentioned that two patients, who were injured in an accident, were brought to the hospital by personnel of the Odalbakra Police Station in critical condition. While one of the injured was shifted to ICU, the other person was declared �brought dead� by the doctor after doing all necessary medical examinations.
As soon as the patient was declared brought dead, the attendants of the patient turned violent and started assaulting the staff of the accident and emergency ward of the hospital. Soon afterwards, more people joined the attendants and started ransacking vital medical equipment and hospital properties.
The situation was brought under control when additional police forces were called in by the hospital authorities, the release added.
