More than 500 resident doctors at civil hospital in Ahmedabad ended their strike after the authorities accepted their demand to provide protection to the doctors on duty. On Sunday, the doctors had gone on strike after a lady doctor was assaulted by relatives and family members of one 64 year old man who died during treatment in the hospital.

Today, after several meetings between the junior doctors and authorities, the doctors announce to end their strike and return to work as the authorities have accepted their demands including deployment of armed policemen in ICU ward and also in each floor of the hospital.

According to sources, in view of increasing attacks on medical staff and doctors by relatives and family members of patients, the government has decided to deploy State Reserved Police (SRP) personnel in the hospital premises and armed policemen at ICU ward, trauma ward and other areas of the sprawling hospital campus spread in over 100 acre and caters to more than six lakh people annually.
