SAMBALPUR:The ongoing stalemate at VSS Institute of Medical Sciences and Research (VIMSAR), Burla came to an end after the PG students suspended their stir on Thursday. They had ceased work since July 30 demanding removal of VIMSAR Director Aswini Pujahari.

He said health services will improve after students join duty as they are the backbone of the hospital.Tension had prevailed after the PG students of VIMSAR allegedly thrashed an attendant of a patient and later attacked the official quarters of Pujahari late on July 28 night. The incident caused widespread protests across the area and people came out in support of Pujahari.Meanwhile, 97 medical officers joined VIMSAR by Thursday evening.
