Kanpur: Junior doctors at a government hospital here, who were on strike demanding action against police officials for allegedly beating a doctor, have ended their strike and resumed work on Thursday.

Navneet Kumar, Principal of the medical college said police officials and college authorities met junior doctors last evening, and assured them that disciplinary action would be taken against the police officials who had allegedly misbehaved with the doctor.
