 Gujarat Health Minister Reassures Docs; Strike Ends

Hundreds of junior doctors returned to work at the Civil Hospital in Ahmedabad following reassurances from Gujarat's health minister.

The doctors numbering 700 had resorted to strike following an attack on a colleague called Sunil Jadhav. Dr Jadhav was stabbed by unidentified people on Tuesday evening.


"After being given an assurance by health minister Jay Narayan Vyas, we called off the strike. The minister assured our delegation that fool-proof security will be provided to doctors at the Civil Hospital," said Devendra Chaudhary, vice-president of the junior doctor's association.

The Shahibaug police are investigating the case. They have also received a complaint from a woman patient at the hospital that three young doctors molested and attempted to rape her. Police have not issued any statement regarding this case.
