Emergency services at the BRD Medical College Hospital here have come to a grinding halt as resident doctors have gone on an indefinite strike since last night following a clash with journalists.
According to hospital sources, the junior doctors had a row with relatives of a patient who died during treatment in the emergency ward of the hospital. Several journalists had gone to cover the incident. The doctors opposed press photographers taking pictures of the row. When the journalists refused to listen, the doctors allegedly turned violent and attacked them with bamboo sticks. They also damaged the van of a news channel, the police said.
The doctors have lodged a complaint against relatives of the deceased patient for provoking violence, while the journalists have lodged complaint against the junior doctors in Gulariha police station, the police said.
