A resident medical officer (RMO) with Saifee Hospital, Charni Road, was arrested for allegedly running over and injuring a police constable in south Mumbai. The constable has been admitted to hospital with a leg fracture, police said.
The accident occurred near Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus railway station on Sunday. The constable, Naseer Tadvi, is posted with Azad Maidan police station.
Dr Arfin Sheikh was riding past the station on his motorcycle when he knocked down Tadvi, who was crossing the road, police said. He took Tadvi to GT hospital and got him admitted, but then allegedly left instead of waiting for police to arrive. Hospital authorities informed the police about the accident and a team reached the hospital to record Tadvi's statement and began inquiries.
"A doctor at GT Hospital said he had seen the accused and recognised him as a doctor with Saifee Hospital. We sent a team to Saifee Hospital and found a bike as described by Tadvi in the parking lot. Inquiries with the security guards revealed that the bike belonged to Sheikh," said senior inspector Deepak Dhole.
Sheikh was taken to the police station and later arrested. He was charged with causing injury due to rash and negligent driving. He ws produced in court on Monday and released on bail. The police have ruled out drink driving.
A Saifee Hospital spokesperson confirmed the incident but clarified that the hospital was not involved in any way. "The doctor should have informed the police immediately," he said.
