For the last three days the South Delhi Police have been waiting for the report that was to be submitted by the AIIMS authorities regarding the sexual abuse case of an eight-year-old boy by a senior resident doctor.
According to senior police officers, the AIIMS authorities are still to file the whole report. “They have told us that the report is still being prepared. Other than the initial summary, we have not got any thing from them,” said a senior police officer on the condition of anonymity, as he is not authorised to speak to the media.
The police said that the report is a vital to the investigation although they are conducting their own parallel investigations as well.
“The internal enquiry report will play a very important part in our investigation. We have been asking for the report but the AIIMS authorities claim that it is still in the process of filing it,” added the officer.
Last month, on January 23, a senior resident doctor with the neurology department of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) allegedly sexually abused an eight-year-old boy.
The incident was brought to the attention of the AIIMS authorities by the father of the victim.
Acting against the accused senior resident doctor, Union Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad had on Wednesday ordered his termination from the premier medical institute.
According to senior doctors at AIIMS, this is for the first time in the history of the 54-year-old institute that a senior resident doctor has been terminated on charges of molesting a patient.
The police are also yet to question the accused doctor in the case as he has been sent on leave by the AIIMS authorities.
“We will question the accused once he is returns to the Capital. We have not questioned him at all in the matter. As soon as he is back we will call him for questioning,” said the officer.
