KARACHI: The doctors and nurses ended their protest, against the manhandling of duty doctors by an attendant, on Thursday and welcomed 13 babies to the world at the Sobhraj Maternity Hospital.

Dr Anwar Khawaja said that the decision was taken in the larger interest of the patients who mostly come from low socio-economic groups and have limited options. He said that the hospital administration had restricted the entry of men to the hospital.
