NEW DELHI: Family members of a 32-year-old man have lodged a complaint with the police claiming that he died after being allegedly thrashed by the staff of a hospital in southwest Delhi, a charge denied by the hospital.

Sonu had gone to the Rao Tula Ram (RTR) Hospital in Jafarapur on Sunday with his wife, where he had some quarrel with the hospital staff, a family member claimed.

“After he was thrashed by the hospital staff, he succumbed to the injuries later,” the family member alleged.

“We will take a call once the post-mortem report is out,” a police officer said.
