Three people were injured after a fight broke out between two groups of doctors at Aziz Bhatti Shaheed Hospital in Gujrat on Thursday, District Police Officer (DPO) Umar Farooq Salamat said.
The three people received minor injuries during the fight, according to the official. He added that four people have been arrested while two weapons have also been seized from them.
Some other private persons were also involved in the clash, Salamat said.
Talking to the media, former president of the Gujrat chapter of Pakistan Medical Association (PMA) Dr Saud Afzal shared details of the incident.
"We were in the TV room when we were attacked by Dr Usama Talat and his companions. Private people accompanying Dr Usama tortured our doctors."
He alleged that Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Raza Awan instead of "sorting the matter further inflamed it".
He also facilitated the escape of the other group from the scene, he claimed.
"We have caught three private people and handed them over to the police. Doctors have shut down services at the hospital," Dr Afzal added.
