Director National Health Mission (NHM) Dr Yashpal Sharma and his predecessor Dr Mohan Singh had a scuffle at the mission office here forcing police to intervene to prevent situation from escalating.
A police official at Chanpora police post said the ex-director Dr Singh had few days ago barged into office of Dr Sharma at Chanpora with a court order, directing for his rerun as the head of the mission. "He (Dr Singh) had taken over the control at the office.
The next day however Dr Sharma had returned to his office. The same day Dr Singh entered the office again, leading to the scuffle," said the official.
The police official said while, in his complaint, Dr Sharma said he was physically assaulted by Dr Singh, the latter too leveled the counter allegation of attack on him. He said though the police received complaints from both sides no case was registered. "We asked them to get the matters settled at the level of administrative department," the police official said.
