Chandigarh doctors call off strike
Apr 26, 2006, 14:48

Striking doctors of the Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) here returned to work Tuesday evening after police nabbed three people who had assaulted two doctors earlier in the day.

Nearly 250 doctors of the premier hospital, who went on a lightning strike early Tuesday, returned to work following the arrest.

The arrested are attendants of a young woman patient. The doctors were assaulted after one of the attendants alleged that the doctors had tried to molest the patient while examining her.

The assault on the doctors led to the strike, giving patients a harrowing time at the hospital.
