A couple of days after some unidentified miscreants allegedly entered the Women's Hostel of Kendrapara Autonomous College and misbehaved with the inmates, the college authorities on Tuesday transferred the hostel superintendent.
The miscreants, who are yet to be identified, reportedly entered the hostel on April 24 night by scaling the boundary wall on the backside where there is no CCTV surveillance or security guards. They later misbehaved with the inmates, snatched their mobile phones, and also looted cash.
The students further alleged that even though they informed the hostel superintendent about the incident, no concrete action was taken for their safety and it forced them to stage protest in front of the principal’s office demanding action against the superintendent.
"By scaling the boundary wall, the miscreants broke the window sliders and cut the innerwear of the girl sleeping near the window with a blade. They even away took away her mobile phone, charger and purse," alleged a hostel inmate.
Speaking on the allegations, principal of the college, Rajendra Prasad Tripathy said, "I rushed to the hostel for inspecting soon after getting information about the incident. No window slider was found broken. It seemed some students had left the windows opened which helped the miscreants enter the hostel."
He further said security measures will be tightened for the safety of the students. "Police patrolling will be intensified in the area. Immediate steps will be taken for wire fencing over the boundary wall and CCTV cameras will also be installed," he added.
