The assault had taken place on the evening of 12th and a nurse named Madhavi Rajaguru was the victim.
While the surgery was taking place, the doctor has placed the bone-cutter on the patient's bed. The nurse had been informed to take it out and the nurse had put it on her tray. It is reported that the doctor who lost his temper due to the act had used the same equipment to hit the nurse.
