A doctor was attacked by a patient with a pair of scissors in an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of a hospital in West Delhi's Tilak Nagar on Friday, police said.

The doctor managed to escape the attack with minor injuries in his hand, they said.

The incident took place when the doctor came to treat the 40-year-old patient in the ICU. The patient, rigid to leave the hospital, took out a pair of scissors and attacked him, a senior police officer said.
