Following a transfer order, a senior doctor at the Medical College here was allegedly assaulted by another senior doctor on Monday. Dr Sabura Begum, the head of Biochemistry Department, alleged that she was assaulted by Dr Vinni Mary Mammen. The Medical College police took up the case on the basis of a complaint filed by the victim’s husband. Medical College principal Dr Ramdas Pisharody has ordered a departmental probe into the incident. According to the sources, the issue broke out over a government order that was related to the posting of Dr Vinni as head of the Biochemistry Department by transferring Dr Sabura to Kottayam Medical College. Dr Vinni, who was earlier serving at the Medical College here was transferred to Kottayam Medical College a couple of months ago. However, Dr Vinni reported at the Medical College here on Monday with the fresh order. Even after Dr Vinni came with the order, Dr Sabura refused to leave, citing that she was not aware of such an order. This led to a verbal fight between the two. Dr Sabura, who alleged that Dr Vinni assaulted her, is now hospitalised. According to the Medical College authorities, Dr Vinni did not produce a reliving order from Kottayam Medical College. “Dr Vinni could join here again only with a relieving order from the place where she was working, as she was earlier relieved from here,” sources said. Meanwhile, the Medical College police said that a decision on registering a case would be taken after recording Dr Sabura’s statement
