Shocking! Doctors fight inside operation theatre in Rajasthan's Jodhpur, newborn dies

Jaipur: In a shocking video, that has reportedly gone viral, two doctors at a state-run government hospital at Rajasthan's Jodhpur are seen fighting inside an operation theatre while a pregnant woman lies on the bed. 

The 30-minute long argument went on even as the woman's newborn child died before them. 

The incident took place at Umaid Hospital in Jodhpur.

Reacting to the incident, the superintendent of the Umaid Hospital said, "When woman was admitted fetus was in distress,had low heartbeat, still will probe reason for newborn's death."

Two doctors -- Ashok Naniwal and ML Tak, who were performing a surgery at a patient, who remains unconscious, are seen engaged in a verbal spat with one another. In the video, one of the two doctors even threatens to assault the other.

Though, it remains unclear what triggered the ugly spat inside an operation theatre, the video however proved just how insensitive these doctors are. 

Taking congnizance of the incident, Rajasthan High Court issued a summon to the Ummaid Hospital and asked them to submit a report on the matter.

The development comes close on the heels of more than 200 children forced to die in Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh.
