The incident comes on the back of doctors in hospitals in Maharashtra being beaten up by angry relatives of patients. The doctors subsequently went on a strike and the case was heard in the Bombay High Court. The High Court, while ordering the doctors to resume work, told the state government to ensure protection to them at hospitals.
