Siliguri (West Bengal) [India], June 16 (ANI): Junior doctors strike entered the sixth day on Sunday in the Siliguri district hospital and North Bengal Medical College and Hospital here resulting in a hassle for patients and their relatives.
A protest erupted after an intern was allegedly attacked at the Nil Ratan Sarkar (NRS) Medical College and Hospital by the relative of a patient who died on June 10.
Speaking to ANI, a relative of a patient said, "My mother suffered from a heart attack on Friday and now she got paralysis. Doctors are not looking after her properly. They asked for a CT scan but they have not examined the report carefully."
"Now doctors have released my mother from the hospital and I have to take her home. This is an emergency situation and if there is a strike going on, they should make arrangements to look after the patients properly," he said.
A patient said, "I was admitted yesterday and doctors are not attending me."
On June 15, West Bengal Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi had asked Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to take immediate steps to provide security to doctors and for a speedy investigation of the incidents of assault on doctors. (ANI)
