Bhubaneswar: Students of Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (KIIT) on Saturday protested against an alleged molestation attempt of a female student on their campus.

As per Odisha Sun Times, the students blocked the KIIT-Sikharchandi road and demanded immediate arrest of the culprits.

The victim is a student of National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT), located inside the KIIT campus near Bhubaneswar.

As per reports, some unidentified youths molested the girl student at around 2 am when she 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.
