Doctors in Shimla hospital go on strike

Shimla, April 22 (IANS) Healthcare services in the Indira Gandhi Medical College and Hospital (IGMCH) here were affected following an indefinite agitation by doctors and paramedical staff, officials said Monday.
"Over 200 medical officials went on the indefinite strike in protest against manhandling of a resident doctor by a patient's attendant Saturday," an IGMCH official told IANS.
He said alternative arrangements have been made as the striking doctors have given an ultimatum to the hospital authorities to arrest the accused within a day or else they would intensify their agitation.
IGMCH's deputy medical superintendent Ramesh Chand said the emergencies services were operating normally.
"Talks with the striking doctors are on and the matter would be sorted out soon," he said.
