It is important to mention here that the victim had been serving without remuneration at that tea estate after his retirement.

The victim was 73 years old and at the time of patient's entry at the hospital the victim went for lunch and as soon as he got call from his colleague, he came to attend the patient.

As the patient was suffering from a heart attack because of high blood pressure, he breathed his last after an injection pushed by the doctor.

After the declaration of death, more than 400 workers came out of their homes and started to attack the doctor.

The mob became so violent that they did not allow carrying him to an ambulance which was waiting outside.

As a result, Deben Dutta succumbed death before he reached the hospital.
