Chaos erupts at NRS over stone pelting; MSVP, principal tender resignations
Kolkata: Fresh tension was triggered at NRS Medical College and Hospital on Thursday afternoon, after some people pelted stones on junior doctors from outside the hospital campus.
The junior doctors, who have been continuing agitation at NRS Medical College and Hospital, alleged that the local councillor had led the attack.
It was alleged that the junior doctors were sitting in agitation inside the main gate of the hospital, when some people threw stones and bottles at them from outside.
The incident caused chaos to erupt inside the hospital again. The junior doctors alleged that police personnel posted at the hospital have failed to catch the miscreants. Subsequently, a heated altercation also broke out between the junior doctors and the policemen.
The junior doctors alleged that some outsiders with hockey sticks in hand stormed into the hospital campus and tried to attack them. They claimed that it was a deliberate attempt by some people to disrupt their movement. The junior doctors closed the main gate of the hospital following the incident.
A huge contingent of police rushed to the spot to bring the situation under control. The main gate remained shut and police later allowed staff members of the hospital inside after checking their identity cards.
Meanwhile, MSVP of NRS Medical College and Hospital Professor Saurabh Chattopadhyay and principal Saibal Kumar Mukherjee submitted their resignations to the Director of Medical Education, for their failure to handle the prevailing situation.
