Not ready to give up their protest against actor-comedian Kapil Sharma for portrayal of their profession in a poor light in his show, nurses met deputy commissioner of police (DCP) J Elanchezhian on Tuesday to enquire as to what action has the police taken on their complaint.

The DCP asked the nurses to give him some more time to act on the complaint. “The matter has been brought to my notice. I will look into the legal angle,” he said.

Talking to the media, Punjab Nurses Association general secretary Raj Bedi said: “The DCP has assured us that he will be taking action on our complaint. We will be waiting for some more time. We will also consult other nursing associations to organise a national-level as well state-level protests against Kapil Sharma.”

Nurses have been protesting against the comedian, who hails from the city, for demeaning the medical profession and have also objected to the “vulgar” uniform worn by actor Rochelle Rao in his show.
