Cuttack: A day after an MBBS student here alleged harassment by her seniors, the medical college officials said the matter has been amicably resolved with the intervention of the students’ parents, even as police asked the college authorities to submit a report on the incident.
A fourth year MBBS student at SCB medical college had earlier lodged a police complaint alleging that some of her seniors had abused her in filthy language and made lewd gestures while watching the annual movie show on Republic Day yesterday.
Acting on the complaint, the police had recorded the statements of the victim and registered a case against four accused persons.
However, today the teaching hospital authorities said the matter has been amicably settled, which was also corroborated by the girl’s father who informed that an understanding was reached between the students in which it was agreed by both sides not to precipitate the matter further.
Inspector of Police Manglabag police station A K Swain said today, “Although, an FIR has been registered in this connection, due process of law would be followed if the matter has been amicably settled between the parties.” He added that the college authorities have been asked to file a report on the alleged incident.
