The incident occurred on Thursday in Bagha Purana town when Paramjit Singh who is the husband of Akali sarpanch Daljit Kaur, and their son Gurjit Singh, came to the private hospital along with a patient. The nurse – Ramandeep Kaur told them to wait to get the person admitted.
Paramjit Singh is also a local Akali leader and he wanted the hospital staff to admit the patient without delay. The nurse asked them to wait for two minutes so that she could call the doctor.
