Kolkata, July 10: In last 4-5 years, doctors in the heart of Bengal have been attacked several times. The doctors who save the life of thousand people, they don’t feel safe anymore. It has become a popular trend in Kolkata that if any patients die at hospitals even due to family’s fault or just naturally, the doctors would be attacked first.
