THE INQUIRY report on the incident regarding alleged confinement of about three-dozen girl students at the hostel of the private Aurobindo College of Nursing on Thursday would be submitted by February 7.
Registrar (Nursing) Anju Bhadoria is conducting inquiry into the incident after order issued by Medical Education Principal Secretary M M Upadhyaya. Upadhyaya told Hindustan Times that the complaints of the girl students would be looked into in details by the Registrar of Nursing and the course of action would decided after the report comes in.
Sources said that a meeting has been convened on February 7 in which direct interaction between the students, their parents and the college administration would be held in the presence of Anju Bhadoria and other officials in a bid to get the real picture.
The three-dozen-odd girl students of the private nursing institute at Lal Ghati were set free on the intervention of the district administration on Thursday after complaints were received from the parents of the girl students. The girls had reportedly complained to their parents that they were being kept in captivity. They alleged that the hostel gate was locked in the evening and they were not allowed to go home.
Some of them alleged that they were not given facilities that were required for their training besides casteist comments were made on a section of girls.
When parents of some students reached to meet their daughters, institute management allegedly did not allow them to meet. This attitude of the institute management enraged parents and they started raising slogans.
As the parents reached the Collector, a team of district administration reached the hostel and set the girls free. At the behest of the district administration the institute’s management, after taking some undertaking, allowed the girls to go with their parents. College management could not be contacted for reaction.
