The patient told ANI, “My wound was bleeding. The doctor didn’t give me any painkiller. A peon came and stitched my wound in presence of the doctor.” Earlier this week, Haryana Chief Minister ML Khattar had said, “Some incidents do get reported and we take immediate action. We are increasing the numbers of medical colleges. There is a requirement for more doctors as the number of doctors is less now. Admission in MBBS course has also doubled since 2013.” Also Read - Delhi Metro's Najafgarh-Dhansa Bus Stand Corridor on Grey Line Opened For Passengers. All You Need to Know
