Thousands of doctors skipped work on Monday against unsafe conditions at work after three of their colleagues were assaulted in West Bengal last week, paralysing health facilities across the country.

The strike was called by the Indian Medical Association (IMA) after at least three junior doctors were attacked by the family of a patient, who died at Kolkata’s NRS Medical College last week. Doctors of state-run medical colleges and hospitals in West Bengal are already protesting since last week and will meet chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday to put across their demands for better security.
