New Delhi: Resident doctors at the Central government`s Safdarjung Hospital continued their strike for the second day on Thursday, demanding proper security for the doctors on duty at the hospital.

According to the striking doctors, the strike won`t be called off until there is a written assurance from the Delhi and Central governments to provide proper security in the hospitals.

The doctors went on strike on Wednesday evening after a female resident doctor was allegedly manhandled while on duty by the attendants of a patient in the emergency ward.

In a similar incident, a senior resident doctor was assaulted by the relatives of a patient. However, police said that they are yet to receive a complaint in this connection.
