HYDERABAD: At least six people were injured at one of Hyderabad's largest hospitals after a car belonging to a doctor ran into a group of pedestrians near the hospital's parking lot. Those injured include at least two patients - one of them is a 95-year-old man, whose leg has been crushed. Another is a woman suffering from heart ailment, who came to the hospital for treatment.
The car belongs to Dr Rehan Qureshi, a plastic surgeon who works at the hospital. But it was being driven by a security guard of the hospital, Shivraj, who did not know how to drive, sources said. The doctor had given him the car keys and asked him to park the car, the sources said. The police are investigating the matter.
The 95-year-old man, identified as Md Qamer, was severely injured and has been admitted to the hospital.
Omer Begum, 55, the heart patient hit by the car, has been hospitalised as well. ''How can a car belonging to the hospital doctor do this to patients? We come for treatment here, not to get injured or killed,'' said her daughter.
