A 30-year-old Indian-origin doctor at a US hospital has been fired after a video that showed her attacking an Uber driver in his vehicle in Miami went viral.

Anjali Ramkissoon has been on administrative leave since the video surfaced in January. She was reportedly inebriated when the incident took place.

Ramkissoon was fired, according to a statement released by the spokesperson of Jackson Health System.

“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.”

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, while yelling and swearing at him and trying to force him to drive her home without a reservation.

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

Ramkissoon later apologized for the incident.

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