Doctor, migrant killed after being run down following fight (ANSA) - Milan, September 9 - A woman doctor was killed overnight after being run down while giving medical assistance to an Indian man stabbed in a fight with some of his compatriots.

The stabbed man was killed too in the incident late on Sunday at Chiuduno, near the northern city of Bergamo.

Police have detained an Indian man they suspect drove the car at the doctor, 44-year-old gynaecologist Eleonora Cantamessa, and the migrant, as well as several other Indians suspected of being involved in the attack.

Cantamessa reportedly stopped to help after seeing the man injured while passing in a car with a friend. It is suspected that the aggressor wanted to make sure the injured man did not survive by driving a car at him and the doctor.

Several other people were injured in the incident.
