Students took the cops to show them the places where the professor had abused them. The places range from secluded streets of Khandagiri’s Soubhagya Nagar, IG Park, his own chamber and a five-star hotel in the city. One of the students, however, was not able to identify the room where he was abused in the hotel.

The professor, identified as PK Jena, has been suspended from the university, but the suspension letter has not yet been delivered to him as his house continues to remain locked.

The cops have also managed to get many important leads in the case after they started the investigation based on a complaint from the students and an FIR lodged by the university.

Earlier, the Departmental Investigation Committee of OUAT, which investigated the case based on complaints by seven male students, did not find concrete evidenceof sexual harssment against the professor. He was, however, found guilty of facilitating cheating and beating up students and was suspended for that.

The students, however, have been continuously accusing him of sexual abuse as we reported here: http://odishasuntimes.com/122244/odisha-professor-accused-of-sexual-harassment-of-boy-students/
