SCB nursing college row: Police record student’s statement

Cuttack: The student of the School of Nursing at SCB Medical College and Hospital, who had levelled allegations of ill-treatment and casteist remark against the principal of the institute, recorded her statement before the police in Cuttack on Friday.

The complainant recorded her statement before Mangalabag police under Sec 161 of CrPC. Another student also recorded her statement before the police as a witness.

Prior to this, the tribal girl was taken for a medical examination.

It may be mentioned that the authorities on Thursday declared sine die and asked the students to leave the hostel by 7.30 am on Friday.

“We have vacated the hostel in deference to the government’s decision. We would be back on the agitational path after the school reopens. We feel the government has been trying to suppress our agitation,” a nursing student claimed.

Notably, the students had filed an FIR against the principal Kajal Rani Sinha at Mangalabag police station on Wednesday. The case was filed under sections 341, 331, 354, 294 of IPC and SC/ST Act.
