Abu Dhabi : Patient Murders Indian Doctor for Slow Treatment

Abu Dhabi, Nov 2 (Emirates 24X7) : An Indian doctor working at a private Abu Dhabi hospital was brutally murdered by his patient on Thursday evening in his hospital cabin.

Dr. Rajan Daniel, 62, urologist, was killed after his throat was slit by his Pakistani patient.

Staff at the Al Ahalia Hospital said they were shocked to see a man trying to leave the hospital with a knife in his hand and blood all over his body.

One of the hospital staff told Emirates 24l7 that the patient, Mohammed Abdul Jameel, 46, was undergoing treatment from the doctor for the last three months. “The incident occurred at around 6.30pm. The man entered the doctors cabin, locked the room from inside and immediately slit the doctor’s throat. He then simply walked out of the room, located on the fifth floor. Staff were shocked to see a man trying to leave the hospital with a knife in his hand. He was completely soaked in blood,” the staff said.

“The hospital staff managed to catch him on the first floor and immediately alerted the police. The doctor was found dead, lying on the floor in his cabin,” he added.

The Arabic language daily Alkhaleej said: “The patient has been to the hospital for treatment before....he came this time with a knife and stabbed the doctor in the neck and other parts of the body many times.” It said police arrested the killer while the hospital was shut briefly after the incident. The daily said that the patient was maddened by the slow treatment process.

The accused is an employee of a private company in Mussaffah, Abu Dhabi.

Dr Daniel who is from Trivandrum in Kerala, India has been working in the hospital since 2007. His wife Geeta George lives with him in the UAE. The doctor is also survived by his only daughter Junu.

    Agree to a certain extent what you mentioned. May be you are quite right, although we still have to patiently wait and see what the outcome of the medical reports state .. further on - if it goes to prove that the Paki was / is insane and out of his senses .. then will the Sharia be binding? How will anyyone ever justify that the Paki is deliberately insane OR is pretending to be insane? In this case, will he still escape punishment as per the Sharia or will he altogether walk out scot free since it CAN'T be proved whether he is sane or insane. These are minute observations that you have to think ''out of the box'' and simultaneously project how things takes its own course. It is too early to comment on this .. let's keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best ... There is a sliver of hope - the only saving grace being that the law will certainly apply, albeit, with equal justice .... hopefully.

    The barbarism that is happening in the world today is the work of ignorant, bigoted people. We ask Almighty for giving strength to the family members of dr rajan the courage to bear the loss. As for the criminal he has punished his family without realising.

    It is a lesson to all hospitals, to gear up security, to avoid such incidents in future.

    All Indian doctors/ doctors union should stop to treat Pakistani patients at least for a day, to protest against this incident.

    This happened becaz of not good education in Pakistan.

    May his soul rest in peace.

    In any case, no human
    being has any right by himself to take human life in retaliation or for
    causing mischief on this earth. Therefore it is incumbent on every
    human being that under no circumstances should he be guilty of
    taking a human life. If anyone has murdered a human being, it is as if
    he has slain the entire human race. These instructions have been
    repeated in the Holy Quran in another place saying:

    Do not kill a soul which Allah has made sacred except through the due
    process of law ... (6:151) .
    A human heart weeps feels sorry for the victim and looks down on the killer with contempt and hate.

    This Pakistani did his cruel act at his will. But here in UAE this kind of cruelty dealt with severe punishment not less than death penalty. It is also notable that within short span of one or two years this culprit will face the firing squad without any remorse even from President of UAE too. Let us pray together for Late Dr Rajan’s soul to rest in peace and give full strength to his family to bear the loss
