The violence ensued when the doctors declared Shahjahan Begum, hailing from Bahadurpura, dead at 1 a.m. on Wednesday. The woman died due to severe blood loss following a complicated pregnancy.
Relatives ransacked the labour room and attacked the doctors. Some of the doctors were even slapped. Though the doctors claimed the woman died because of anemia, her relatives alleged she died due to doctor's negligence.
The angry kinfolk broke everything they could lay their hands on; saline bottles, stands and glass panes of the windows.
