A civil surgeon was sacked in Ujjain after the district hospital found a video of him kissing a woman inside an operation theatre. The video first surfaced on the WhatsApp group of the nursing staff and then went viral on social media.
The 49-year-old civil surgeon was removed from his post for ‘behaviour unbecoming of an officer’. Ujjain district collector Shashank Mishra told PTI, “I have removed him from the post of a civil surgeon of the district hospital. I have also issued a notice seeking an explanation from the senior doctor”. The video shows the doctor kissing a woman, possibly a staff nurse, inside an operation theatre at the hospital.

The doctor hasn’t shown up at the hospital ever since the video went viral. The collector informed that he has been on leaves for a few days while the authorities are waiting for his reply. Reportedly, the divisional commissioner is expected to order an inquiry following the incident. The woman in the video is believed to be the hospital employee.
As informed by the hospital employees, the video going viral is not the only video shared on their WhatsApp group. Other videos were also shared. However, whether they were sent by mistake or with an agenda, is still unknown. The civil surgeon could not be contacted for his comment on the video.
