New Delhi: The members of AIIMS nursing union on Sunday held a protest over the death of their colleague who they claimed died allegedly due to negligence of the doctors. The union threatened to go on strike if the doctors, who treated the woman, were not terminated from service.

"We lost one of our colleagues due to the negligence of the doctors. We want the doctors who were involved in the negligence towards her to be terminated. We can discuss about our other demands with the AIIMS administration but we want the termination of doctors," said Jat.
