New Delhi, May 31: The Supreme Court on Wednesday ordered the striking doctors and all other protestors to resume work forthwith.

We direct that all protests strikes or any form of dissent shall be called off immediately,” ordered the vacation bench of Arijit Pasayat and Justice L S Panta.

The court also directed the government “to restore medical services forthwith” and asked the Additional solicitor general Gopal Subramanium to file an a status report by Thursday.

If strikes are permitted to continue, it would serve no result. Patients right to get treated is inseparable from the right under Article 21 of constitution. Damage done to a patient is sometimes is irretrievable,” said the bench.
