Kolkata/IBNS: Chaos erupted at National Medical College Hospital in Kolkata after a patient's family started to protest over charges of negligence. Police resorted to lathi charge on the agitators.

Shehnaz Begum was admitted to the hospital with chest pain on Sunday noon. She was accompanied by four family members.

She was taken to the Cardiology unit around 2 PM and was put under examination. However, the hospital found no heart-related problems and sent her back to the Emergency department where she was administered an injection.

After this, she was in severe pain and her family started to blame the hospital authorities and engaged in tussle with the nurses.

This is when the doctors called the police and they resorted to lathicharge on the patient's family.

Civic volunteers also joined the police which has raised questions over their authorities.

According to local media reports, some of the family members were hurt in the lathicharge incident.
