The doctor who treated Gorakhnath temple attacker Ahmad Murtaza Abbasi refuted the claims that he was mentally unstable. Speaking to Times Now, Superintendent in Chief of Gorakhpur District Hospital JSP Singh said the accused was talking coherently during the medical examination. He was responding to the queries of the Police and the doctors. He further added Abbasi did not display any signs of being violent, which made the doctors believe he was not mentally unstable.
