In the wake of untoward incidents within the premises of the Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS), stern measures are being taken by the institute to ensure the safety and security of its students.
Director RIMS Tulsi Mahato said, "There is an open field just in front of the campus and anti-social elements enter and leave the campus at will. At times, they create nuisance within the campus. So I decided to take the matter into my hands. I have asked the guards to shut the gates of the campus by 8 pm in the night. They have also been asked not to allow any outsider within the institute. As far as the general public is concerned, there is another gate through which they can enter the institute premises."
Speaking further, he added, "I have also asked the guards to report to me if such people enter the campus or create any such nuisance on the campus." Students also complained that the boundary walls near their hostels and other areas on the campus were in urgent need of repair. "For this, work has been started from Wednesday. The safety of the students is top priority for us," added he.
It's the outsiders who are largely responsible for the mess. "As we have to report to our wards at times, we return quite late in the night and these anti-social elements are becoming a big problem for us. Sometime ago, there was also a case of eve-teasing on the campus and hence we thought of taking our grievance to the director," said Priyamvada Tiwary, an undergraduate student. source-articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com
