The doctor allegedly told them, "You throw stones at our security forces there (Kashmir) and come here for treatment."

Malik said he did not know the name of the doctor.

"He was fine until he saw the prescription card of hospitals in Kashmir... He threw them away," Malik alleged.

The patient was advised to undergo angiography and told that the treatment would cost Rs 15 lakh.
