While the entire country is locked down to contain the spread of novel coronavirus, a shocking video has surfaced in which AIMIM Malegaon MLA Maulana Mufti Ismail and his supporters can be seen creating ruckus at a local hospital where two suspected Covid-19 patients have been isolated.
As per ANI report, the MLA has been arrested.
Notwithstanding the imposition of section 144, the AIMIM leader, along with 20-25 of his supporters, barged into the hospital and misbehaved with the staff. They also beat up one Dr Kishor Dange, as per reports.
After the incident, the doctors and staff went on strike demanding their arrest. The staff of the hospital sat on a dharna outside Malegaon General Hospital.
