The Supreme Court said it will hear a plea seeking safety and security of doctors in Government Hospitals across the country on June 18.
The plea was filed on Friday in the wake of protests by doctors in West Bengal against an assault on their colleagues allegedly by the relatives of a patient, who died on June 10 at a Kolkata hospital.
The Indian Medical Association has supported the agitation of the doctors and has directed its members of all its state branches to stage protests and wear black badges on Friday. Many senior doctors have resigned from their government posts in order to express solidarity with the agitating doctors
