Government doctors in Siddharth Nagar on Monday called off their strike after the district administration assured them of fair police investigation into the incident in which Dr Mahesh Prasad was attacked by Samajwadi Party MLA Vijay Kumar and his associates at his residence on Saturday.
Doctors had been on strike since then and had closed down OPD of the district hospital. Dr RB Ram, president of Siddharth Nagar district unit of Provincial Medical Services Association, said they called off their strike after the administration assured them of stringent action against the accused.
The assurance was given by Additional District Magistrate Ram Manohar Mishra who visited the doctors where they were sitting on dharna opposite the district hospital gate.
Dr RB Ram said the ADM assured them that no action would be taken against Dr Prasad on the basis of the MLA's complaint before the police investigation was completed.
The ADM said he assured the doctors that the police investigation would be done in fair manner and no action would be taken under pressure. He added that on the demand of the doctors, police patrolling would be increased in and outside the district hospital. On Saturday afternoon, MLA Vijay Kumar, along with his associates, went to Dr Prasad's rented house at Naugarh Baansi Marg and reportedly thrashed him.
