BHU docs go on indefinite strike
[ 26 Dec, 2006 1928hrs IST PTI ]

VARANASI: Resident and junior doctors of Sir Sunderlal Hospital in the Banaras Hindu University (BHU) on Tuesday proceeded on indefinite strike, while students of other faculties boycotted classes to protest against lathicharge on the anti-quota protesters by private security guards.

The protesting doctors stayed away from duties in the hospital since early Tuesday morning, university sources said. The academic activities in the university were also affected as the students of various facultiesí boycotted classes.

Their demand includes action against the security guards and other officials responsible for the baton-charge.

It was the second time in the week that the junior and resident medicos proceeded on strike and other students boycotted classes after some anti-quota protesters were lathicharged by the security guards.

The junior medicos and other anti-quota protesters have also decided to intensify their agitation against the OBC reservation in the academic institutions, Kamal Gupta, spearheading the agitation, said.

Stating that the anti-quota protesters would not be cowed down by the coercive actions of the university, he said they would continue with their peaceful agitation against the reservation policy.

The private security guards had lathicharged the anti-quota protesters late on Monday evening in which at least seven students, including two girls, sustained injuries while they were carrying out signature campaign near the university gate against reservation policy.
