Govt warns medical college professors not to harass medical students

Saturday, March 11, 2017

Bhubaneswar: The Directorate of Medical Education and Training (DMET) has asked professors and teachers of medical colleges to refrain from harassing postgraduate medical students and from using them in their domestic chores.

The DMET had recently received an anonymous letter alleging that postgraduate students were being harassed in government medical colleges and were being used in domestic works included bringing grocery items for the professors, cooking their daily foods, taking their child to schools and managing their various social events such as marriages and birthdays.

The DMET has warned of legal action against the professors indulging in such activities. The directorate has also asked government medical college authorities to conduct a probe in this regard. The medical college authorities have denied the allegations, reports The Telegraph.
