Cuttack: Amid investigations into Ravenshaw University sexual harassment case, a student of SCB Medical College and Hospital today brought molestation allegation against a doctor of the premier government-run healthcare facility.
The matter came to light when a girl student of the Pharmacy Department lodged a written complaint with Mangalabag police alleging she was physically and mentally harassed by a senior doctor.
As per the FIR, the doctor, identified as Prafulla Kumar Mohapatra, was the Head of Pharmacy Department in the medical college.
The victim also alleged that the doctor had threatened to ruin her career if she reveals about the incident.
Students, including the victim, today staged a dharna on the campus demanding stern action against the doctor.
“He (Prafulla Mohapatra) used to harass us by saying he would take extra classes in the evening. We stopped going to attend classes after his evil intention came to our knowledge,” the protesting students expressed.
Meanwhile, the hospital authorities could not be contacted for the comment.
