Cuttack: Following assurance from Health Minister Atanu Sabyaschi Naik, the striking students of SCB nursing school here today decided to call off their protests temporarily.
“If our demands are not fulfilled within a reasonable time, we will revive our agitation again,” the agitating students said. The students had been agitating for nearly three weeks demanding removal of their school principal Kajal Rani Sinha.
Alleging that the Principal had been torturing them physically and mentally for long, the students had petitioned the SCB Hospital superintendent. But when an in-house probe committee gave a clean chit to the principal, the students created uproarious scenes inside the campus forcing the State government to close the school indefinitely on May 12.
Since then the students had been urging the authorities to take appropriate action against the principal and restore normalcy in the campus by lifting the closing order.
