A doctor was slapped by the relatives of a 33-year-old woman, who died this morning at a private hospital in Kolkata. The woman had delivered a baby by caesarean section on Wednesday. Her relatives said she seemed to be recovering, but at 3 am, the family received a call that her condition was critical. By the time they reached the hospital, she had died. The staff at Calcutta Medical Research Institute (CMRI) Hospital and gynaecologist Dr Basav Mukherjee were meeting the distraught family when Tapen Bhattacharya, the husband of the woman who died, got up from his seat and slapped the doctor.
