SANGAREDDY: In an act that drew widespread condemnation, a physically-challenged patient was made to touch the feet of a junior female doctor at the district headquarters hospital here on Thursday.

According to eyewitnesses, Subhash, hit Dr Manasa and she hit him back. The medical staff later made him touch her feet. Subhash apologised for hitting her and said he did not know she was a doctor as there was no stethoscope around her neck. 

Trouble started when the doctors, after participating in a nationwide protest against the National Medical Commission (NMC) Bill, were returning to work. Dr Manasa was trying to enter the emergency ward, pushing people aside. She pushed Subhash too, and as he fell, he hit her. Outraged at Subhash’s audacity, she hit him back. The doctors started protesting again, and Subhash later apologised, but the hospital staff were not satisfied, and forced him to touch her feet.
