Formulating the main issues to be considered by it, the bench asked Dhavan to further prepare his submissions/suggestions as to whether doctors strike should be treated as negligence or misconduct on their part.

It also asked Dhavan to examine whether MCI can initiate action against the doctors and paramedics for resorting to strike.
