CUTTACK: Students of SCB Medical College and Hospital, School of Nursing resorted to cease-work on Tuesday over the incident in which a fourth year student Subhadra Murmu was allegedly misbehaved and assaulted by the Principal.

Protesting the inaction of SCB authorities, over 200 nursing students took out a rally and staged a dharna in front of the office of the Superintendent, SCBMCH.

The students alleged that Principal of the School of Nursing Kajal Rani Sinha allegedly made derogatory remarks over her caste and even assaulted her on May 7. Following the incident, around 50 students met Superintendent, SCBMCH Prof Pratap Chandra Rath on Sunday and sought action against the Principal.

When the Superintendent did not meet them, the students approached Administrator, SCBMCH Pratap Mishra. However, there was no result.

The students said their agitation would continue till authorities take note of their grievances.

On the other hand, both the Superintendent and Administrator refused to comment on the matter. Reliable sources said the nursing students are planning to lodge an FIR in this regard with the local police on Wednesday.
