In his complaint, the technician said that he was on duty at the diagnostic centre when around 8.30 pm the doctor came and just stared at him for a while without uttering a word. After an hour, the doctor left the diagnostic centre by locking up the technician inside.
After some time, the technician called the police control room and informed the cops that he was stuck inside the diagnostic centre, he said.
Soon afterwards, a police team reached the site and rescued him. Based on his complaint, a first information report (FIR) was registered against the doctor around 1.40 am. He was booked under Indian Penal Code (IPC) section 342 (wrongful confinement).
"The reason behind the doctor*s act of locking up the technician is being probed," the police official said.
