A 42-year-old suspended school teacher and a drug addict Sandeep, who was brought to Kottarakkara Taluk Hospital around 4 a.m. by the local police killed house surgeon Dr Vandana Das.

A medical official said Sandeep picked up scissors and attacked Vandana Das multiple times when she was attending to him.

"She was given emergency treatment and shifted to a premier hospital in the capital city. Despite best efforts, her life could not be saved," said a senior Indian Medical Association office-bearer.

As the news spread, hundreds of doctors rushed to the hospital where her body is kept. "Despite promises, no action is being taken and hence we are going on a strike. We demand that strict action be taken without any more promises," they asserted.

Soon after the incident the medical professionals in both the private and government sector called for a 24 hour strike and only attended to emergency services.
