Mumbai, Dec 27: Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan took a dig at media and ethics of journalism while criticising its role during the coverage of the recent infamous gangrape in Delhi.

Massive discussion and debates have been held over the coverage of media during the time when she was taken in an ambulance to the airport on Wednesday, Dec 26.

Big B on his Facebook wall wrote, "Lot of debate and discussion and comment on the media coverage of patient Delhi Gangrape, being shifted in ambulance to another location ... patient privacy is an important element in the Constitutional Journals of Medical Ethics."

Reminding people about the incidents when he was in critical condition and was admitted to hospital, Big B slammed the media organisations.

"Couple of years ago when I was in an emergency and taken to Hospital, media had blocked the ambulance door to such an extent that it took my family and the doctors 20 minutes to open the door to get me out, while I suffered in pain inside, impatient to get immediate medical attention," wrote the megastar.

"On another occasion, after a surgery, a journalist dressed herself in doctor's gear and walked into the ICU where I was and then immediately went out and started live reporting on my condition, saying she had just met me. Ethics be damned," he added.

The 23-year-old victim of the gangrape has been shifted to Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore for further treatment. The hospital has a state-of-the-art facility for multi-organ transplant. Doctors of the hospital informed that the victim's health condition deteriorated but they refused to reveal further information regarding the same.
