Both the groups – the protesters and the doctors – entered into confrontation over possession claims of hostel building.
The arguments turned into a brawl, prompting police to intervene and baton-charge the protesters. At least six paramedics and a doctor were injured in the scuffles that broke out in the wake of disagreement.
Charged protesters also pelted hospital with stones, shattering glasses of the building. Police also resorted to shelling to disperse protesters.
After a protest that lasted over two hours, the doctors vacated the hostel building.
