According to police reports, the 48-year-old male patient was admitted with two other mentally ill patients.
The two are said to have assaulted the patient during the early hours of Sunday morning. Details about the incident remains sketchy, as health authorities at the state hospital refused to comment, saying they do not have the authority to do so. Director of Health in the region, Timea Ngwira could also not be reached for comment as she was said to be in a meeting.
