 Cops Deployed at Hospital to Guard Patient Who Went Berserk

After a TB patient killed a 66-year-old co-patient and injured three others at the psychiatric ward of Bombay Hospital, three police guard and two ward boys have been brought in to guard the patient's ward in JJ Hospital where he is admitted now.

"We cannot predict when and if the patient will turn violent. We have to be very careful with such cases. I'm also worried about the 17 other patients admitted in the same ward. To avoid such incidents, I have asked for extra staff to be deployed, and have also instructed the staff to ensure there are no harmful objects within his reach," said Dr T P Lahane, dean, JJ Hospital.

Lahane added that Sahabuddin Talukdar's treatment has started and he has been given sedatives. He is also under the treatment of TB experts and neurologists. He said that Talukdar was admitted for psychiatric problems six years ago and keeping all this in mind an MRI scan has been suggested for him.

"Three of our constables are posted round-the-clock. He is not yet in a condition to give his statement. Once he stabilises, we will arrest him under IPC section 302 and record his statement," said Narendra Singh, Senior PI, Azad Maidan police station.

According to the police, Talukdar, who was at present tied to the bed for safety purposes, was not co-operating and was not ready to eat also.
