Ahmedabad: Over 190 striking nursing
staff of the U N Mehta Heart Institute here were today
detained and Essential Services Maintenance Act (ESMA) was
invoked against them.

"As many as 193 nursing staff of the U N Mehta Heart
Institute were detained under the Bombay Police Act. They will
be released later," Inspector N B Nagori told PTI.

The staff is on a strike since yesterday to protest
the decision of the government-run hospital`s authorities to
suspend three members of their union. They were demanding
their reinstatement.

In a release this evening, the institute said ESMA,
which provides for the maintenance of certain essential
services, has been invoked against the agitating staffers to
ensure they return to work immediately.
