3 medical college faculty booked for sexual assault of PG student

Cuttack: Three teachers of a state-run medical college and hospital were booked by the police on the charge of sexual assault and harassment of a student from Jharkhand.

Police said a case has been registered against a senior resident, an associate professor and the head of the department of the dental wing of the SCB Medical College and Hospital here.

The second-year post-graduate student lodged a written complaint with the police against the three teachers yesterday.

They have been booked under various IPC Sections including 354 (assaulting a woman with intent to outrage her modesty), 354A (sexual harassment), 294 (obscene acts) and 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), police said.

In her complaint, the student said she had been sexually assaulted by the senior resident and the associate professor for the past several days.

When the woman brought this to the notice of the head of the department on Sunday, he misbehaved with her instead of helping her, she alleged.

The three accused were yet to be arrested.

  1. This type of behaviour is not accepted and i feel the student has told truth when she could no longer bear the torture. All the concerned staff should be arrested and given strict punishment so that they dont repeat it. The sexual harrassment is common in Dental wing everywhere.

    No impartial enquiry has been done. The HOD has denied any wrong doing and has claimed that the lady student was not doing her duties and was reprimanded, after which she has brought this accusation
