“There have been instances of doctors being man-handled by the kins of patients in the past which is highly condemnable. We will hold a candle march today at 6.30 PM to express solidarity with the doctors in strike and also to protest the high-handedness of city police and administration on the junior doctors,” said RDA general secretary, Dr Shashank Pooniya.
AIIMS resident doctors are also observing a ‘black badge day’ today as a gesture to support the ongoing strike by the doctors in Kanpur and all other medical colleges in Uttar Pradesh.

“Further we demand that a judicial enquiry or a CBI enquiry into this matter should be initiated,” said Dr Narendra Saini, general secretary of IMA. IMA has also received a complaint from the Students of GSVM Medical College of Kanpur informing about the brutal attack by the Samajwadi Party MLA, Irfan Solanki and his supporters on February 28. “Despite complaint given to police on the incident, they did not take proper action and manhandled and mistreated the complainants and students.
“Mob blocked the emergency and compelled the authority of the College not to treat the injured and gun-shot patients”, said Saini. The medical fraternity in Kanpur has boycotted emergency services with the strike entering fourth day at various government and private hospitals. Several government hospitals in Uttar Pradesh have also joined the agitation.
