Medical services across Maharashtra were crippled on Monday as nearly 4,000 resident doctors went on “mass leave“ to protest against recurrent attacks against medicos, including two new cases reported from Wadia Maternity Hospital in Parel and Aurangabad. Over 400 surgeries were postponed across the four medical colleges in Mumbai--KEM, Sion, Nair and JJ.

Thousands of patients were inconvenienced on Monday as they were refused admission, discharged and even asked to come back next week. An activist lawyer who had filed a petition against frequent strikes by doctors requested the Bombay high court on Monday to hear the issue since the state's resident doctors' association had given an assurance that it would not call strikes. The court will hear the PIL on Tuesday .
