Junior doctors of Goa Medical College and Hospital (GMHC), who were on a 24-hour token strike to protest police action against agitating medicos in Mumbai, resumed duties on Thursday.

Services at the hospital, which were affected on Wednesday, are functioning normally, sources said.

The authorities had to engage para-clinical staff to assist consulting doctors, after resident doctors, interns and students affiliated to the Goa Association of Resident Doctors (GARD), went on strike.

"We have joined duty. Our future course of action will be decided after consulting the All India Resident Doctors Association and Indian Medical Association," said GARD president Vishwanath Marathe.

Around 180 resident doctors and 100 interns had struck work and 300 students had boycotted classes for a day as part of the day-long agitation.
