Bombay HC to hear junior doctors plea

Mumbai [India], Mar. 22 : The Bombay High Court will on Wednesday hear the junior doctors' mass leave matter. The High Court yesterday asked the doctors to resume their duties immediately. The court came heavily on the protesting doctors and asked its representative body the Maharashtra Association of Resident Doctors (MARD) to ask all doctors to resume their duties immediately else it would be contempt of court as the doctors organisation has given an undertaking that it would not go on strike.

The court also directed Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis-led government and the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to provide adequate security to doctors in all hospitals all over Mumbai and Maharashtra.

The doctors are on strike due to the recent incidents of violence against them. This protest comes in the wake of attack on one of the doctors by a patient's relatives earlier on Saturday.
