The Bombay High Court will hear a plea on doctor's strike as Maharashtra witnessed mass leave by doctor's protesting against the recent attack on a resident doctor in Dhule Civil Hospital. 

The High Court's move comes as Maharashtra Association of Resident Doctors (MARD) continued their strike on Tuesday as it entered the fifth day today. According to media reports, about 4,000 resident doctors are on strike across Maharashtra.







ANI reported a crowd outside Mumbai’s Sion Hospital as resident doctors continued their strike on Monday.

Dr Avinash Supe, the dean of KEM Hospital, said on Monday they are making all emergency arrangements to ensure that patients don't suffer due to the strike. 

Dr Rohan Mhamunkar was beaten up by a mob at the Dhule Hospital in Maharashtra on the night of March 12. 

According to police, an accident victim had been admitted to the hospital, and his relatives had a spat with Dr Mhamunkar over the course of treatment and beat him up.


The CCTV footage of the assault had gone viral.
