Guwahati: Sensation gripped Dibrugarh on Friday after a woman doctor’s body was found lying in a pool of blood inside the intensive care unit of the Assam Medical College.

Police arrested a ward boy in connection with the case and a probe is on.

Sarita Tashniwal, who hails from neighbouring Sivsagar district, was a first-year post-graduate student of the gynaecology department, AMC officials said. She was on night duty since Thursday evening in the ICU, they said.

The officials said a nurse went to the ward around 7.30 am and found her lying in a pool of blood.  Police said they saw a cut mark on her neck and they recovered a surgical knife that might have been used to commit the murder.

The AMC is one of the oldest medical institutes in northeast India. British philanthropist Sir John Berry White, spent his lifetime’s earning to establish this institution.         — IANS
