Palghar, May 23 (PTI) Several people were booked in Virar in Palghar district on Sunday for allegedly assaulting a doctor of a private hospital after their kin faced discomfort while being subjected to an RT-PCR test, Mira Bhayander Vasai Virar (MBVV) police said.

While collecting samples of a woman, a part of the swab stick broke and remained stuck in her nose, leading to her relatives abusing the paramedical staff and hitting a doctor who arrived at the spot, a Virar police station official said.

A video of the incident went viral on social media, and the official said the woman's kin have been charged under various IPC sections but have not been arrested. PTI COR BNM BNM BNM
