New Delhi, July 01: Resident doctors at the Hindu Rao Hospital in New Delhi are on strike since yesterday, after relatives of a patient attacked two of their colleagues the previous day.

"The patient died during treatment and her husband and relatives quarrelled with doctors on duty; her son slapped a doctor. Soon after, some doctors gathered and there was a scuffle," said he said.

The Resident Doctors' Association (RDA) of the hospital on Sunday issued a press statement after three doctors and two nursing staff, including females, were allegedly assaulted.

Doctors in West Bengal had gone on strike in June after a mob attacked two interns following the death of a patient at NRS Medical College and Hospital in Kolkata. The doctors called off their strike a week later, following talks with West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
