Bhubaneswar: A State-level team which went to VIMSAR Medical College Burla for conducting an inquiry into the doctor's assault on youth, has submitted its report to the Health and Family Welfare Minister.

The Minister, Naba Kishore Das said on Wednesday that the report is being examined and senior officials of the Department are trying to ascertain why did the doctors leave the campus for taking on a member of the public.

"A police complaint has been registered in this connection and further investigation is on. So far, I have received the interim report. The final report in this matter is awaited," Das said.

The incident happened on October 19 when some medical students from Veer Surendra Sai Institute Of Medical Science And Research (VIMSAR) caught hold of two youths who were trying to flee after allegedly assaulting a Professor of the neurology department.
