Agartala, Aug 4 (TIWN): Four people in Tripura were arrested on Tuesday for allegedly abusing and spitting on a woman doctor at a health facility here, police said.

There was an additional government advocate among these four who had earlier tested Covid positive. They were arrested after the completion of their seven-day institutional quarantine.  The victim was West Tripura District Health Surveillance Officer Sangita Chakraborty. The incident was reported from a government-run Covid Care Centre (CCC) here when she had gone on July 24 to admit five women who had given birth only a day earlier, the police officer said.  Chakraborty also told the media: "One of the patients rinsed his mouth and spat on my head from the roof of the Covid care centre, forcing me to rush inside the centre."  She said they had reached the care centre with a health department team and police personnel to admit the new patients when a group of people, men and women, obstructed their way and claimed that there were no beds vacant at the centre.
