Doc produced in court for assaulting 5-year-old boy

By Norman Palihawadana

The doctor attached to the Matale hospital who is alleged to have kicked a five-year-old boy in the thigh was produced before the Matale Magistrate on Sunday and ordered to appear in court on April 9.

The suspect denied the charge against him.

The child had visited the hospital last Sunday accompanied by his mother to seek treatment as he was suffering from fewer.

According to the complainant (the victim’s mother) the doctor had dragged the child away and assaulted him claiming that he had tapped the wall of his cubicle, when infact it had been done by another.
