Now, Medical College staff of Nehru group attempts suicide
- Nehru Group of Institutions had faced public ire after a BTech student committed suicide after alleged torture by college authorities
- The nursing staff attempted suicide by consuming hydric acid
- Relatives alleged that the college authorities denied to issue their certificates
Nehru College of Institutions, that faced large scale criticism from public following suicide of a student, has once again landed in a fix as two staff of one of the medical colleges under the group attempted suicide by consuming acid. The condition of two women employees of P K Das Memorial Medical College Hospital in Vaniyamkulam near Shoaranur continues to be critical.
The duo had reportedly attempted suicide by consuming hydric acid. They were admitted to intensive care unit of the hospital. The digestive tracts have suffered serious burn injuries and are in ventilator support.
The medical college belongs to Nehru Group of Institutions, which faced large scale outrage after Jishnu Pranoy, an engineering student of Nehru Engineering College at Pampady, who committed suicide following alleged harassment by the college management.
The two nursing staff, aged 23 and 24, were working with the Radiology Department of the institution after finishing their course in the same college, as mandated by a bond agreement. Their bond tenure was ending on Saturday, and the duo had resigned from the job a month ago.
The college authorities said the women had requested for regularisation of the job, but the management refused to consider their request. According to authorities, both of them were found unconscious in their room in the wee hours of Sunday.
However, relatives alleged that the women took extreme step as the management denied to issue their certificates.
