BURLA: The standoff between Director of VIMSAR Aswini Pujahari and PG students of the medical college continued on Sunday with none in a mood to relent. The PG students resorted to cease work from Sunday afternoon.
Sources said on Friday night, some PG students on duty in the Casualty ward found an attendant of a patient recording the treatment on his mobile. The attendant told the doctors that he would take up the inordinate delay in treatment with the Director of VIMSAR, which irked the students, who allegedly beat him up.
Later, the students went to the official quarters of Pujahari and allegedly pelted stones at his house. Tension prevailed in Burla on Saturday following the incident.
Meanwhile, the CCTV footage in the casualty ward was found to be deleted. The students lodged a fresh complaint against Pujahari with Burla police on Sunday accusing him of instigating the public to attack them on Saturday.
On the other hand, in a bid to resolve the stalemate, Pujahari has offered a three-point formula. He asked the students to apologise to the attendant, own up stone pelting on his house on Friday night and give in writing to the police that they will maintain peace in the institution.
Pujahari said if the students agree, the issue will be resolved. He further said the junior teachers will be engaged in the health service and he will work as surgeon to deal with the situation.
