Chirayu Medical College professor allegedly slapped by court magistrate, Medicos take to streets
Alleging that in a show of power the Magistrate harassed the professor, the medicos accused him and his elder son for allegedly beating up the professor.
The medicos alleged that during the elections, the medical college professor had scolded 3rd-year MBBS student for repeatedly breaching the model code of conduct. It was further alleged that the student was creating a nuisance by constantly shouting slogans when he had been repeatedly told not to.
The professor then punished him and made him do situps. The video footage of student being scolded was uploaded on social media by one of his friends as a prank.
Afterwards, that social media post was seen by the student's elder brother, who then along with his father who is a Jabalpur Court judge and 8-10 policemen barged into the medical college campus when the students were counting election votes. The brother allegedly dragged the professor in front of the medicos and asked him to apologize back to the student or do sit-ups, the medicos stated.
According to recent media reports, the magistrate along with his elder son slapped the professor and harassed him.
The medicos further alleged that the duo was repeatedly insulting the professor by asking him to do demeaning tasks in front of the students and started recording the footage for sharing it on social media. They recorded a video of him apologizing to the MBBS student and threatened him, alleged the doctors.
Following the incident , the medicos at the Chirayu Medical College took to streets demanding an apology from the magistrate and his sons.
The students have refused to relent back and have vouched to continue the strike until the MBBS student's father comes from the faculty and apologizes.
The video attached below is the footage of medicos protesting at the institute campus against the assault.
The medicos have also taken to twitter expressing their anger. Slogans #savethedoctors, #justiceforchirayu, #stopviolenceagainstdoctors were raised
