Case against AIMIM MLA for manhandling medical officer

A case has been registered against Maulana Mufti Mohammed, an MLA of All India Majlis-e- Ittihaldul Muslimeen (AIMIM), and his supporters for allegedly manhandling a medical officer of General Hospital, Malegaon, police said. The incident took place on Wednesday night, police said.

"Around 8 pm on Wednesday, the MLA, who represents the Malegaon Central assembly constituency, came to the hospital along with his supporters and started abusing the staff. He barged into the office of medical officer Dr Kishor Dange and started shouting at him," an official said. "The MLA and some of his supporters then threatened and manhandled Dr Dange. After this, other doctors, nurses, ward boys and other staff of the hospital stopped work and staged a sit-in," he said.

Only after they were assured action in the incident, the staffers withdrew their agitation, police said. Dr Dange later filed a complaint in this connection with Malegaon Central Police Station.
