Mumbai: The Bandra police have lodged an FIR against a woman for physically assaulting a nurse at Bhabha Hospital in Bandra West. The incident occurred when the woman, visiting her ailing sister admitted to the hospital, was denied entry to the ward, leading her to resort to physical assault.

According to the police, the nurse Sanpada Nandoskar, 35, on January 29, had a morning shift from 7am to 2pm. A patient Prabhavati Kengar, 37, was admitted to the female ward of Bhabha Hospital.
