New Delhi :  

The resident doctors at Safdarjung Hospital in New Delhi went on strike for an indefinite period on Wednesday after their colleague was allegedly manhandled by the attendants of a patient.

A resident doctor was allegedly assaulted by a patient in the Out Patient Department (OPD) of the hospital on Wednesday.

In order to get full security and oppose such assault on them, the resident's doctors have decided to strike. After the strike, the emergency service in the hospital was also disrupted.

Due to strike, the watch man asked patients to return from the exit gate. The strike adversely affected the patient's health.

“Around 2:30 in the afternoon, a patient assaulted a doctor alleging that his treatment was being delayed by the doctor. Such incidents are not new to us. Earlier also we witnessed such violence. 

Our security should be increased to check such attacks. We will go for indefinite strike till our demands are fulfilled,” Dheer Singh, president of Safdarjung resident doctors, told ANI.

A FIR was also filed in this regard, said Sigh demanding proper security arrangement in the hospital.
