Earlier this week, the woman, Fareeda, was asked to take her husband Ameer Sab for an x-ray, but was allegedly given no stretcher or wheelchair at the Shivamogga Medical College. The staff allegedly didn't help either, so it was left to her to somehow make sure her husband made it for his x-ray.
The video of Fareeda dragging her husband has been widely shared and has also been shown on loop by local TV channels.
The Director and Dean of the, BV Sushil Kumar, told NDTV that he had suspended four employees, including three nurses for not providing a wheelchair or any assistance. But he also claimed that Fareeda was not in such a dire state at all.
It is believed that the video was taken by someone who had come to visit a patient.
Ameer is still being treated at the hospital. A local channel has said it will donate Rs 51,000 for his treatment.
