The Medical Unit (MU) at NIT Durgapur was the focal point around which the protests were organised. Students referred to the MU as the “Murderer’s Unit” due to its association with frequent student deaths. Students were assured by the MHRD that all their grievances regarding the health facility will be addressed. Renovation of the Medical Unit was a major step in this direction.
