SCB College Of Nursing Closed, Students Stage Protest

Cuttack: The SCB College of Nursing under SCB Medical College & Hospital in Cuttack has been closed in view of the resurgence of Covid-19.

As per a notice issued by the Principal on Friday, the decision was taken following the order of the Additional Chief Secretary of Health & Family Welfare Department.

Students have been directed to vacate the hostels by today 5 PM failing which they will be evacuated with the help of district administration.

However, the students are staging a protest alleging that it is a conspiracy of the Principal. They have threatened to commit suicide if the decision is not revoked.

Students further questioned the decision as not a single case of Covid-19 has been reported from the college and all of them have received the Covid-19 vaccine.
