Khan had come to the hospital as he was facing difficulty in passing urine for the last several days. He was accompanied by his nephew Chaman.

Chaman asked for the treatment cost from the hospital staff before admission.

“The hospital staff told me that they would tell the treatment cost after conducting an ultrasound but the hospital gave me a bill of Rs 5,000 for medicines without conducting an ultrasound. We paid the money,” he said.

The hospital staff later told them that per day charges of the hospital would be around Rs 4,000-5,000.

“As we were unable to pay this amount, we asked the hospital to discharge him. When we came out of the hospital after making the payment of Rs 5,000, a staff approached us and demanded that we pay them Rs 4,000 more,” Chaman said.

He said he pleaded with the staff to let them go but they started beating the victim.

Dr Danish Ali of the medical organisation, meanwhile, said that the patient had refused to pay the amount of Rs 4,000. “They attacked our staffer on this issue,” he said.
