A new born baby died after two doctors engaged in a nasty verbal spat in an operation theatre during an emergency surgery.

The horrific incident of medical negligence occurred at Umaid hospital in Jodhur, Rajasthan, on Wednesday. 

A video, which has gone viral, shows Dr Ashok Neniwal, a gynaecologist, and anaesthetist Dr ML Tak fighting bitterly in Hindi while a pregnant woman lies on the operation table awaiting an emergency C-section.

Dr Neniwal even threatens to beat up Dr Tak in the video. 

The Principal of Umaid hospital AL Bhat promised stringent action against erring doctors.

“Both doctors have been removed immediately and disciplinary action will be taken against them,” he said.
He said when the woman was admitted, the fetus was already in a critical state and its heart beat was also very low.  

The incident would be probed to find the actual reason for newborn's death, he added.

Speaking to ABP News Dr Tak said Dr Ashok was ill-mannered and fought with everyone including his own superintendent. 

“He came to hit me with a retractor but someone held him back,” he alleged. 

Dr Ashok said there was a conspiracy to make him quit the hospital. “The video was shot by an anaesthesia team member, who had shown only a part  of it,” he alleged. 

The surgery staff has been guilty of other misdemeanour as well. 

While mobile phones are prohibited inside operation theatre, one of them used the device to film the duel. 

In the midst of the fight, a mobile phone of another team member starts ringing. 

It is, however, not what might have lead to the verbal spat between the two doctors.
