A doctor in government hospital was put under Awaiting Posting Order (APO) by Rajasthan government, after which he was found curing a possessed woman by slapping therapy and burning incense sticks in front of her.

The incident took place on Wednesday when a woman was brought to the hospital in a semi-conscious state.

In a video, the government doctor was caught on camera slapping woman and allegedly pulling the hair of the woman, after which the video went viral.

“He is a qualified doctor and what he was doing is not in any way part of medical sciences. He should have tried to treat her medically rather than adopting these techniques. We have put him under APO”, a senior Medical & Heath Department official told the media.
