Doctors, who have been soft targets for anti-social elements in Bihar, will now be protected by a special battalion constituted by the state government.
According to a top official of the health department, the main aim of the proposed battalion is to give the doctors a sense of security when they are on duty and off-duty.
Rai said though the details were still being worked out, the government was planning to bring in the legislation in February's assembly session.
