According to news reports, following the death of a patient, arguments ensued between the family members and some junior doctors.

"The doctors thrashed the relatives of the patient. When gathered media persons tried to record the statement of the family members of the patient with their photographs, the junior doctors thrashed the media persons too.

"Subsequently, medical services in the medical college were completely paralysed. Reportedly, the rampant junior doctors stopped the main supply of oxygen resulting in the death of six patients," said an NHRC statement quoting the media report.

The rights body has sought a response within two weeks.
