KOLKATA, June 17 - The protesting doctors in West Bengal on Monday agreed to withdraw their week-long stir after Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee announced steps to scale up security at hospitals.

An assurance to call off the strike came at a meeting Banerjee held with representatives of the striking doctors at the state secretariat. �We are satisfied with the meeting,� said a representative of the doctors, assuring Banerjee that the strike is going to be called off.

A formal announcement on withdrawal of the strike is likely to be made from the epicentre of the protest, the NRS Medical College and Hospital.

The Indian Medical Association (IMA) had given the nationwide call to withdraw non-emergency services after junior doctors in West Bengal went on a strike against an attack on their colleagues by relatives of a patient who died during treatment. In many government and private hospitals across the country, OPDs remained closed. However, emergency services remained operational. � PTI
