�But the emergency and casualty service continue to function,� said IMA Manipur unit secretary Dr Nelson Loitongbam. �IMA has been demanding a national law against hospital violence�, he informed.

More than 1,000 doctors working across the State are reportedly supporting the nationwide protest.

MBBS students, junior resident doctors of Regional Institute of Medical Sciences(RIMS) and IMA Manipur branch also held a protest meeting followed by a silent protest rally by wearing black badges.

All out patient departments (OPDs), routine operation theatre services and ward visits were withdrawn from 6 am on Monday to 6 am of Tuesday.
