It is duty of all medical practitioner to make available immediate & timely medical care to every injured person whether it is accidental or homicidal, the life of person is more important than the legal formalities, Whenever such cases come to the hospital, the doctor on duty must inform to the duty constable or police station giving the preliminary data as name, age, sex, of the patient and place of occurrence of incidence, giving false information is punishable under section, 193 IPC.
