Patna, Aug 10: Nearly a dozen patients have died during a strike by Bihar’s doctors, which was called off on Friday after an assurance by the state government to fulfil their demands, officials said.

Junior doctors from the Patna Medical College and Hospital (PMCH), Nalanda Medical College and Hospital (NMCH) and Darbhanga Medical College and Hospital (DMCH) ended their strike after Bihar’s Chief Secretary Deepak Kumar assured them late Thursday that their demands would be met.

“All the striking doctors have returned to work after the government’s assurance,” Health Secretary Sanjay Kumar said.

Junior doctors from NMCH went on a strike on Tuesday after they were assaulted by a patient’s attendants. Doctors from PMCH and DMCH joined the strike on Thursday morning to show their support.

They are demanding a security cover to junior doctors during duty hours and protection and action against misbehaving attendants of patients.

The strike has left hundreds of patients, many of them in a serious condition, in the lurch.

New Delhi, Dec 15 : A 27-year-old woman was allegedly assaulted by “over 20 women bouncers” and her mother in-law in the national capital, police said on Friday.

An FIR has been registered on the basis of victim’s complaint.

The police said the victim, Garima Chaudhary, was assaulted on Monday noon when she came back from her parents’ house in Haryana’s Rohtak.

“When she, along with her mother, tried to enter her husband’s house at Saket, a group of over 30 goons including 20 women bouncers, prevented her and her mother and dragged them out.

“When Garima resisted their attempts, the women bouncers and her mother-in-law identified as Sunita Chaudhary assaulted her. They even punched her mother. The victim also stated that she has a life threat from her mother-in-law,” the FIR mentioned.

Garima alleged that her husband, Tejveer, was also involved in the incident and “he escaped from the backdoor on the day of crime”.

“I don’t know why my mother-in-law doesn’t want to keep me in my husband’s house. She also made my husband go underground. He is not answering my calls,” she added.

The victim married Tajveer in November 2017.

“We have registered a case and booked accused persons for making sexually-coloured remarks, stalking and other relevant sections. A hunt is on to nab the accused persons,” a senior police officer said.

Panaji, Dec 14 : With an eye on the upcoming Lok Sabha elections and the by-polls in two legislative assembly constituencies, the BJP on Friday announced the appointment of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) pracharak Satish Dhond as the organising secretary for Goa.

Dhond, a close aide of ailing Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, is considered to be one of the key architects of the BJP’s rise as an organisation and its ascent to power, by working behind the scenes and persuading leaders to toe the party line.

Confirming Dhond’s appointment, Goa Bharatiya Janata Party’s general secretary Sadanand Shet Tanavde on Friday said, “He will be reporting to BJP’s general secretary for Goa Vijay Puranik.”

Dhond is currently holding charge of Thane and Konkan regions in Maharashtra.

Dhond is expected to meet Goa BJP office bearers at the state party headquarters on Friday to chart out the course of action for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections and review the party’s campaign plan.

The state is also scheduled to witness two assembly by-polls, which have been necessitated following the resignation of two Congress MLAs in October, who eventually joined the BJP.
