Continuing with their agitation against comedian Kapil Sharma for allegedly projecting nurses in a “vulgar” manner on his comedy show, nursing staff from various medical colleges and hospitals staged a protest here on Thursday, and are mulling to approach deputy commissioner (DC) Varun Roojam to look into the matter.

The protesters burnt effigies of Sharma and blocked the traffic on Majitha road.

Jagdeep Kaur, a staff nurse, said, “We want the authorities concerned to ban Kapil Sharma’s show.”

Punjab Nursing Association general secretary Raj Bedi said, “If the show is not banned, we will file an FIR against Sharma. We will also approach the deputy commissioner and ask him to look into the matter.”

She said that the protest would continue till their demand was met, adding that the police had assured that required measures would be taken in the case.
