"Doctors are not attending patients in wards as they continued to stay off duty. Patients are now being looked after by nurses and para-medical staff," an official said.

The protesting doctors have demanded a security cover during duty hours and action against misbehaving patients' families.

The doctors have said that they would not end their strike on mere assurances by the state government.

The strike has left hundreds of patients, many of them in a serious condition, in trouble.
