A young orthopaedic surgeon has died by suicide as he was harassed by many people on social media after the news of a child dying circulated. The doctor was facing hatred as he was accused of a child death during the time of a surgery on September 23.
“The investigation is at a primary stage. There are several procedures involved and we cannot jump to any conclusions. The child’s post-mortem report and other lab reports are awaited.” This has been reported.
‘We have been in touch with the doctor’s office all along and had even asked him to contact us (if he was facing threats). He didn’t personally tell me anything about it.’
Meanwhile, several doctors came to the fore in support of Dr Anoop, censuring the ‘trial by social media and online portals’.
