Nurses arrested while protesting in Bangalore
Bangalore: Around hundred members of a city-based Nurses Association were on Wednesday arrested as they tried to lay a siege to the Bangalore Medical College demanding regularisation of their services, police said.
Bangalore Medical College and Research Institute Stipendiary Staff Nurses Welfare Association members, who were on a relay fast at Bannappa Park for about a week, marched to the BMC raising slogans against the managements of four hospitals, police said.
They were arrested when they tried to barge into the BMC, police said.
The stipendiary nurses had been working for the past five to six years in the four hospitals coming under BMCRI on a monthly stipend of Rs 7,000.
BMCRI has been demanding regularisation of their services for the last few years.
