- A 25-year-old accident victim was brought to Jhansi Medical College
- After amputating his foot, doctors reportedly used it as a headrest
- The government has suspended the doctors, staff members; probe ordered
Doctors at a state-run medical college allegedly used the amputated foot of the patient as a headrest for the man because a pillow was not available, local reports said.
The incident took place at the Jhansi Medical College, which claims to be a super speciality hospital that serves many districts in Uttar Pradesh's Bundelkhand region. The video appeared to have been shot on Saturday morning.
He was then taken to Jhansi Medical College, 45 km from the accident site, where doctors amputated his leg and then placed it under his head as a pillow, his relatives have alleged. A pillow was not given.
The Uttar Pradesh government said a probe has been ordered and action will be taken against those found responsible. Medical Education Minister Ashutosh Tandon has ordered the suspension of emergency medical officer Dr Mahendra Pal Singh, senior resident Dr Alok Agarwal and nurses Deepa Narang and Shashi Srivastava.
