Cuttack, July 6:
Dr Sitaram Mohapatra, former professor and head of the Pathology department of SCB Medical College and Hospital in Cuttack, who was recently shifted to the Health and Family Welfare department by the state government following his alleged sexual torture of a woman PG student, has sought anticipatory bail from the Odisha High Court.
The absconding professor, in his petition to the High Court, has alleged that the allegations leveled against him are false and baseless and attempts have been made to malign him.
Mohapatra, who has gone on a long leave since allegations against him were made by the SCB students and junior doctors, was relieved by the Health and Family Welfare department through e-mail.
According to the commissionerate police, they are looking for the absconding professor but have not been able to nab him despite a series of raids.
