Interns call off strike
Interns at Mymensingh Medical College and Hospital (MMCH), who went on an indefinite strike on Monday night, called off their programme after talks with MMCH authorities and leaders of Bangladesh Medical Association (BMA) here yesterday evening.
The interns went on strike after a relative of a patient on Monday night misbehaved with two on-duty interns at CCU.
Soon after the incident, 180 intern doctors at the hospital went on a wild-cat strike, suspending their activities including emergency services at the hospital.
Later, the interns demanded immediate arrest of the man responsible for the misbehaviour and security of the interns and staff working at the hospital.
Contacted, Dr. Mithun Sutradhar, president of Interns Doctors Association at MMCH, said that they had a fruitful discussion with MMCH director Brig Gen Md. Fasiur Rahman and BMA leaders.
We will join the work tomorrow (December 26) said Dr Mithun.
