The protest at the Goa Medical College will be held till 5 p.m.
He also said that doctors will continue to attend emergency services at the state Health Ministry-operated facility.
Veeresh claims that there was "total lack of support with regards to this matter of the assault from the West Bengal health authorities and Kolkata Police.
He has demanded the immediate arrest of the accused.
"It really makes us wonder how doctors are supposed to work in such dangerous, insecure and life-threatening environment," Veeresh said.
Meanwhile, Panaji's Manipal Hospital, one of the largest private hospitals in Goa, also participated in the protests with its doctors, management and staffers wearing black badges, black shirts and tops as a mark of protest.
"Manipal Hospital doctors and management are fully supportive of the West Bengal doctors who are suffering due to violence against them at the top medical college there, by wearing black badges on arms and black shirts," a senior oncologist at the private facility, Shekhar Salkar, said.
The protests in the state-run NRS Hospital in Kolkata erupted on Tuesday morning bringing the regular services to a standstill, after a junior doctor was allegedly beaten up by the kin of a 75-year-old patient who died there late Monday night.
The family members of the deceased patient alleged medical negligence. An intern named Paribaha Mukherjee sustained a serious skull injury in the attack and has been admitted in the intensive care unit of Kolkata's Institute of Neurosciences.
