Four people have been arrested and charged with an attempt to murder following an assault on a 50-year-old doctor earlier this week in Karnataka`s Chikkamagaluru district allegedly over the death of a six-year-old patient, the police have said.

Dr. Deepak was assaulted on Monday in Chikkamagaluru`s Tarikere town, district Superintendent of Police MH Akshay told NDTV. A video shows the injured doctor after the assault. 

"Four people from the same taluka were arrested within 18 hours of the crime taking place. Dr Deepak was treating a 6-year-old child, Bhuvan, for dengue. After the child developed complications, he was shifted to Shivamogga where he later died. Of the four held, one is the child`s relative, the rest are friends," Mr. Akshay said. 

The doctor is receiving treatment in Shivamogga.

Resident doctors in Karnataka have written to Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa demanding the setting up of a legal cell to deal with such attacks.
