New Delhi: A city court has dismissed a complaint against a doctor, who referred to some medical practitioners as “murderers in white coats” in a video that went viral on social media earlier this year, saying there was nothing in the video which lowered reputation of medical practitioners.

The video was posted on YouTube in December last in which Vivek Bindra could be seen speaking about alleged money-making practices prevalent in medical profession. The video became viral on social media and Dr Bindra was accused of defaming doctors, by medical bodies, including Indian Medical Association (IMA).

Metropolitan magistrate A. Jain, who rejected the complaint against Dr Bindra, said he watched the video many times and could not find anything defamatory against doctors. He said:  “The context in which the video has been published, seems an endeavour of a businessman who himself is a doctor.
