An attendant of a patient in an emergency ward of the hospital raised a furore and apparently slapped a junior resident on duty, alleging that the doctor conducted himself in an indecent manner during his fiancé's check-up. This allegation has been totally denied by the Doctor in question.
Immediately a strike ensued by the Doctors at Government Medical College and Hospital to protest this incident of ill treatment by an attendant of a patient. Later the doctors stopped their agitation after a meeting was convened between civil, hospital and police authorities.
Doctors and nursing staff have resumed work after the authorities confirmed that action will be taken to bring remedy to such incidents, so that they don't happen in the future. Health services at the hospital were severely affected after the doctors went on strike.
