Safdarjung resident doctors continue strike, demand proper security

New Delhi, Nov 24 (IANS) Resident doctors at the Central government’s Safdarjung Hospital continued their strike for the second day on Thursday, demanding proper security for the doctors on duty at the hospital.

According to the striking doctors, the strike won’t be called off until there is a written assurance from the Delhi and Central governments to provide proper security in the hospitals.

The doctors went on strike on Wednesday evening after a female resident doctor was allegedly manhandled while on duty by the attendants of a patient in the emergency ward.

In a similar incident, a senior resident doctor was assaulted by the relatives of a patient. However, police said that they are yet to receive a complaint in this connection.
