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

He also said that Director General of Police has assured that 400 extra armed police personnel will be deployed in various hospitals for the safety of the doctors.

Resident doctors in government hospitals across Mumbai have made a decision to go on mass leave in wake of the brutal attacks on doctors in recent days. Attacks on doctors took place in Nashik, Dhule, Sion and Aurangabad.

It may be recalled that on March 12, relatives of a patient attacked Dr Rohan Mhamunkar at the Dhule Civil Hospital after he suggested that they move the patient, who had suffered a head injury, to another hospital that had better facilities. Following the protest by doctors, police arrested the 7 to 8 accused allegedly involved in the case.

Eight turncoats, who switched over to BJP and won the elections, were also accommodated in the Council of Ministers. Adityanath is yet to resign from the Lok Sabha, where he is into his fifth consecutive term.

In a letter to the Dean of Sion Hospital, the Resident Doctors said they were unable to report to the duty as they couldn't "concentrate" on the work.

In a recent update, Mumbai Mayor V Mahadeshwar has asked all doctors to end their strike and return to work by the evening. They stopped working from 7 pm, according to PTI.

There have been at least five attacks on resident doctors in one week, including two in the past 24 hours, said Indian Medical Association (Youth) state President Sagar Mundada. The doctors, therefore, cannot go on strike officially.

Doctors in Sion hospital are holding a silent protest as permission to go on strike has been denied by the Bombay High Court. Expressing solidarity with the attacked resident doctors at the hospital, the doctors in Mumbai are agitating against the recent spate of attacks on resident doctors and have demanded strict action from the government.
