Vandana Das Identified As Doctor Stabbed Death By Accused Brought For Checkup At Hospital
A school teacher who was brought to the hospital by the police for a medical test on Wednesday fatally stabbed a female doctor who was on duty at a government hospital in Kerala’s Kollam. At the government taluk hospital in Kottarakkara, the event was reported early in the morning.
The victim was identified by the police as 23-year-old Vandana Das, a hospital employee. Das, who had several stab wounds to her neck and chest, passed away on Wednesday morning at a private hospital in Thiruvananthapuram.
According to the police, the 42-year-old accused S Sandeep, a teacher at an upper primary school, also attacked four other people at the hospital, including police officers who took him there for treatment.
Sandeep allegedly attacked his family members on Tuesday night before being arrested outside of his home, according to the police. His family members informed them of Sandeep’s violent tendencies, and they went to his home.
When a police squad took him to the hospital for a required medical examination because he had a small injury to his leg, he became aggressive without being provoked. While Das was treating to Das’ wound in the hospital’s dressing area, according to the authorities, Sandeep stole the surgical scissors.
The young doctor was repeatedly stabbed in the chest and neck, and the police officers who had carried him to the hospital were also attacked.
A group of state government physicians, the Kerala Government Medical Officers Association (KGMOA), has denounced the murder. In addition, the KGMOA announced a strike in the Kollam region.
