Keonjhar: The Chief District Medical Officer (CDMO) in-charge and Additional District Medical Officer (ADMO) of Keonjhar District Headquarters Hospital were locked by the Class IV employees on Monday after being dismissed from their jobs without any prior notice.

Following it, the employees staged a dharna in front of the ADMO office demanding permanent jobs in the hospital. The CDMO in-charge jumped in to resolve the matter but when he failed to do so, the employees locked him and the ADMO in a room on the hospital premises.

No police complaint in this regard was filed till filing of the report as the IIC of Keonjhar Town Police Station denied of having any information in this regard.
