Healthcare services at several government and private hospitals in Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh were affected as scores of doctors stayed away from work in solidarity with their colleagues in West Bengal.

The doctors stayed away from non-emergency services in response to a call for a 24-hour strike by the Indian Medical Association (IMA) against an attack on two junior doctors at a hospital in Kolkata last week.

At several places, including Ludhiana, Patiala, Bathinda, Hisar, Faridabad, Gurgaon and Chandigarh, the doctors also took out protest marches. A protesting doctor said the fraternity is deeply saddened and disappointed by the ongoing impasse in West Bengal and the "lack of genuine initiatives on part of the administration there".
