Ahmedabad: Around a year ago, a 25-year-old man from Ahmedabad, Gujarat lost his wife to complications in her pregnancy. Identified as Vipul Vyas, the man took revenge for his wife's death on Monday afternoon. Vipul Vyas shot at the doctor who was administering treatment to his wife. 

The doctor has been identified as Mukesh Prajapati. Prajapati was shot at by the accused when he was returning home on his two-wheeler. 

How it happened 

Last year in August, Vipul Vyas and his pregnant wife Rupal went to Mukesh Prajapati's multispeciality hospital in Krushnakunj Shopping Centre in Odhav. Rupal was getting her treatment from a gynaecologist who has been identified as Safalta Gupta. 

Rupal suffered complications in her pregnancy and the doctors advised her to have a caesarean delivery. Rupal's health deteriorated after her delivery and the doctors shifted her to a private hospital. When there was no improvement in her health, Rupal was transferred to Asarwa Civil Hospital where she died while undergoing treatment. 


On Monday, Prajapati was going back home after withdrawing money from a bank. The doctor was on his way when his phone rang and he parked his scooter to receive the call. As he was talking on the phone, Prajapati was shot at on his left upper arm. 

When he turned back, he saw Vipul Vyas speeding away on his motorcycle. Prajapati saw that Vipul was carrying a pistol. The police registered a case of attempted murder against the accused. No arrest has been made yet.

Unavailable to take patient's calls, doctor blamed for minor's death in Kolkata

In another incident from Kolkata's Garden Reach, a doctor was brutally thrashed after a patient passed away. The patient, Subham Tiwari had hurt his pelvis while playing and was taken to the doctor. The doctor, Amitabh Mondal gave him an antibiotic, a painkiller and medicine to reduce dehydration. 

Subham's condition worsened after he consumed the medicines. Soon after, he complained of burning sensations and collapsed. Subham's family kept calling the doctor but all their calls went unanswered. The six-year-old boy's parents then took him to the Shishumangal Hospital where he was declared dead. Locals and family members of the deceased resorted to protests and blocked the Fatehpur Road. They attacked Amitabh Mondal and locked him up in the room. The doctor was later rescued by the police.
