Defying Mamata Banerjee's four-hour ultimatum, jr doctors at NRS continue with their agitation; Mass resignation threatened

ultimatum to striking doctors either to join work or face punitive action, if necessary invocation of

However, an official communication is awaited from the North Bengal hospital regarding the number of deceased and the causes.
