Meanwhile, Indian Medical Association (IMA) on Monday described the incident as a "highly condemnable and shameful act".
    
Around 14,000 resident doctors of AIIMS would be wearing black badge on their dresses to express solidarity with the doctors in strike and also to oppose such kind of untoward incidents in future.
    
"There have been instances of doctors being man-handled by the kind of patients in the past which is wrong. We doctors give our best to treat a patient. We will be wearing black badges tomorrow to oppose such kind of behaviour on the part of the patients' relative," said RDA general secretary, Dr Shashank Pooniya.
    
A clash had broken out on Friday night between supporters of SP MLA Irfan Solanki and junior doctors of the Kanpur college.
    
Following unruly scenes, the police later resorted to lathicharge to disperse the crowd. The incident left several people, including police personnel, journalists and many civilians injured, sources had said.
    
Thirty-six junior doctors were arrested after the incident. Twelve of them were later released.
    
In a release today IMA said, "Assault on doctors is highly condemnable and shameful act by miscreants of the society who under the garb of emotion and sentiments torture doctors and ransack the property of the medical establishments."
    
It has put eight demands, including immediate revocation of all the charges against the arrested medical students and arrest of MLA Irfan Solanki.
    
The medical fraternity in Kanpur has boycotted emergency services for the third day at various government and private hospitals.
    
The strike continued as negotiations between administration and doctors of GSV Medical College Kanpur failed on Monday.
    
24 arrested undergraduate medical students of the medical college were sent to jail after being produced before a court on Saturday evening.
