Two senior doctors in Jodhpur's Umaid Hospital were caught on camera fighting inside the operation theatre during surgery of a pregnant woman.

The video was recorded by the nursing staff members and accessed through hospital sources. It showed a gynaecologist fighting in an offensive language with another doctor even as the patient was on the operating table.

The woman, who was being operated upon, was brought in an acutely critical condition and was transferred to the operation theatre for a C-section, media reports said.

Soon into the operation, she lost her child. 

The video clearly shows the two doctors frantically screaming at each other, warning each other to mind their language and arguing over what apparently seems to be an ego clash.

According to ANI, Rajasthan High Court has demanded a report on the incident. 

The two doctors were removed immediately after the issue was reported, according to a media report.
