JUNIOR DOCTORS of Baba Raghav Das Medical College on Tuesday intensified their strike against assault on medicos by PTS jawans on the Nauchandi Express.

Emergency services were stopped and patients at Nehru Hospital of the medical college bore the brunt of the strike, which entered the second day.

Meanwhile, junior doctors of the BRD Medical College who had sustained injuries in the incident reached the medical college.

Junior Doctors’ Association (JDA) president Ashish Gangwar criticised the State Government for adopting dilly-dallying tactics.

He demanded arrest of the accused and Rs 10 lakh compensation for victims.
Emergency and outpatient department services were suspended by junior doctors to mount pressure on the government.

Gangwar said the condition of three junior doctors, including Kamlesh Sharma of BRD Medical College, was serious and they were receiving treatment at various hospitals.

He said the association was in no mood to compromise on this issue and was in touch with junior doctors of King George’s Medical University, who were negotiating with higher authorities.

Replying to a question, Gangwar claimed that the strike in all seven medical colleges of the State had affected medical services.

Patients who were brought to the medical college had to be admitted to other hospitals.

On Monday, nearly 400 patients were registered at OPD till 1 pm before the JDA called for a full-fledged strike.
