An autorickshaw driver was allegedly caught administering an injection to a pregnant woman in a Community Health Centre in Balesar on Thursday. 

While inspecting the health centre, Deputy Director of Health Department, Jodhpur, Dr Sunil Kumar Bisht, spotted a person administering an injection to a pregnant woman in the women's ward. The doctor thought he belonged to the community centre. However, when the man was asked about aspirin, he left the syringe on the spot and ran away.

Dr Bisht said that he tried to get hold of the autorickshaw driver but he ran away.

According to the locals, the autorickshaw driver's name is Shakir.

Speaking to ANI, Chief Medical officer (CMO) Baleswar, Dr Prapt Singh, said, "Yesterday, Dr Sunil Bisht visited the community centre in the morning. He found a person holding a syringe. We investigated and found that the person who was holding the syringe is not our employee. He is an autorickshaw driver. When the doctor entered the ward he was found holding the injection, he got scared and ran away. It is not clear whether he was the one who gave the injection."

The Deputy Director of Health, Jodhpur, has asked for a report from the CMO in this matter.

In a similar incident, a Pune-based doctor was arrested by the Hinjewadi police for alleged negligence in the treatment of a 13-year-old girl who died following treatment at his clinic in September 2017. A complaint in this regard was filed by Assistant Police Inspector A M Pagare at the Hinjewadi police station against Dr Baban Jadhav, a resident of Bavdhan, following the girl's death.
