150 Harley Davidson Riders Ride Through Mumbai Roads To Protest Attacks

About 150 Harley Davidson bikers from Mumbai and Pune joined hands and participated in a bike rally to raise awareness on doctors rights. The rally called 'save the doctors from assaults' by resident doctors was a unique way to show their angst against doctors' assault by relatives of patients.

The bike ride aimed to attract the attention of the medical education ministry for better security at hospitals.

The bike rally that took place on December 20 was held jointly by MARD (Maharashtra Association of Resident Doctors) and Harley Davidson Club of Mumbai and Pune.

The rally was started from JJ hospital at 10 am and continue through Nair, KEM and Sion hospital throughout the day.

Dr Sagar Mundada, president of MARD, said, "The reason for this awareness ride is that resident doctors are working extended hours and have to handle usually difficult situations in the hospital. Patients can also sometimes die, and emotions run hard in the family. In these situations, doctors have faced a lot of violence at the hands of the relatives or authorities."
