Maharashtra State Branch of Indian Radiological and Imaging Association along with hundreds of doctors from Indian Medical Association joined hands demanding a national law against violence in hospitals.

Nisha Khatri, president, MARD committee, KEM said, "All doctors were on duty, but we carried out a protest march at 1pm."
