Watch: Indian-origin doctor who attacked Uber driver fired from job

Washington: An Indian-origin doctor at a US Miami hospital has been fired after a video that showed her attacking an Uber driver and his vehicle went viral.

Anjali Ramkissoon, 30, has been on administrative leave since the video surfaced in January, and according to a statement released by a spokeswoman for Jackson Health System, was terminated from her position there yesterday.

“Jackson Health System is moving forward with the termination of Dr Anjali Ramkissoon, a resident doctor,” The Miami Herald quoted the statement as saying.

“She is entitled to an appeal process.”

Ms Ramkissoon, who was a four-year neurology resident at the hospital, was seen in the video attempting to strike and scratch the driver, climbing into the man’s vehicle and throwing objects out of it, all the while yelling and swearing at him and trying to force him to drive her home.

The driver has so far opted to remain anonymous and has declined to press charges.

Ms Ramkissoon later apologised for the incident.

The video of the incident has nearly seven million views and sparked a lot of outrage and controversy.
