Doctors go on three-day strike

Chapra: Close on the heels of doctors in Patna and Purnia resorting to protests, government physicians here on Saturday started a three-day token strike against the alleged assault on a civil surgeon. The doctors of Chapra town went on strike at the call of district unit of Bihar State Health Services Association (BSHSA) to protest the alleged assault on civil surgeon Subhash Sharma on September 19 by some criminals. The co-convenor of the struggle committee of the association, K M Singh, said the doctors resorted to strike following district administration’s “failure” to nab those who had assaulted the civil surgeon and ransacked his office.
