A Delhi-based family was on Sunday brutally thrashed with iron rods and sticks by private bouncers and security guards at the AIIMS Trauma Centre in Delhi. Shockingly, the video of the incident shows police present at the spot while guards were beating the kin of the patient girl.
Talking to News Nation, the father of the girl patient named Adeeba, alleged that the guards present at the hospital used to pass lewd comments on his wife. When he and his relatives objected to this, the bouncers and guards started hitting them, leaving them critically injured.
According to the victim, a resident of Delhi's Nizamuddin area, his daughter was admitted to the Trauma Centre on Monday after she fell from the fourth floor of a building while playing. She was operated the next day and was under observation.
While his wife used to stay at the hospital during day, Ali used to stay at night. The guards present there -- who belong to an agency named SWIFT Security -- used to pass vulgar remarks on her, he alleged.
"My wife complained about this to the head of the guards but he did not take action. She then told me about this. I also approached the security head but he was rude with me," he told News Nation.
"Today, some of my relatives came to visit Adeeba. They were not allowed to enter the ward. We, along with other people present there, asked the guards to apologise to my wife on which they got angry started threatening us," he added.
The complainant said he then dialled 100 and called the police. Meanwhile, the bouncers came out with iron rods and sticks and started thrashing them.
The girl's father has suffered bone fracture in his shoulder and 4-5 stitches in his head while his nephew has got 15 stitches on his head.
