In Varanasi, an argument between the junior doctors of Banaras Hindu University (BHU) hospital and a patient’s relatives escalated into a full-blown fight on Monday evening.

While the fight led to vandalism on the campus, the junior doctors decided to stop work.

It is said that the fight took place in Sir Sunderlal hospital reportedly over the delay in treating the patient.

The fight was halted when the BHU protocol board and the police officials turned up to pacify the situation.

The police had to be deployed in the area in large numbers to prevent any escalation of the situation.

Earlier this month, clashes broke out at the campus between the students from the two hostels over food and
escalated into a physical confrontation.

The police complaint was filed against the students over “rioting” and “destroying public property” by BHU Chief Proctor Royana Singh.
