Students in Odisha block road over ‘molestation’

Bhubaneswar, Aug 6 (IANS) Students of Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (KIIT) on Saturday resorted to a road blockade to protest the alleged molestation of a girl student of National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) located inside the KIIT campus.

The students came out in large numbers and blocked the KIIT-Sikharchandi Road and demanded immediate arrest of the culprits.

They alleged that a girl student of NIFT was molested by some unidentified youths at around 2 a.m. when the girl was on the way to the NIFT campus.

Though the girl screamed for help, the security guards deployed near a women’s hostel of KIIT did not come to her rescue. The warden of the women’s hostel did not help the girl, the agitating students alleged.

The agitating KIIT students have demanded proper scanning of the CCTV footage and action against the miscreants. They have also demanded immediate justice and foolproof security for all students within the campus.

The campus is situated barely 500 metres away from the Infocity Police Station limits in the capital city here.

However, the Commissionerate police denied that such an incident has happened.

“Prima facie we found that no such incident has happened in KIIT campus. We are examining the CCTV footage to ascertain the truth,” said Deputy Commissioner of police Satyabrat Bhoi.
