Doctors across Uttar Pradesh called off their six-day strike against the attack on their colleagues in Kanpur, a day after the UP government clamped ESMA against striking medicos and the Allahabad High Court stepped in to resolve the deadlock.
Twenty-four junior doctors, who were arrested in connection with the clash with police and supporters of a SP MLA, have been released.
The six-day strike, which adversely impacted medical services in several parts of the state, was called up after medicos at GSV Medical College were allegedly beaten up by Kanpur Police and supporters of SP MLA Irfan Solanki following an altercation.

Amidst reports of deaths in different districts of the state due to the strike, UP government yesterday decided to invoke the Essential Services Maintenance Act.
The Lucknow bench of Allahabad High Court had yesterday directed UP government to transfer SSP, Kanpur, Yashaswi Yadav, and other officials involved in the February 28 clash, but clarified that it was only to resolve the situation and should not be taken as a “stigma” on the officials.
