The victim, who was under the influence of anesthesia, could not object, the SHO said. The i ncident came to light when she informed the attendant in the morning, police added.

The accused then travelled to Delhi and tried to rape a patient at a private hospital there but she raised an alarm, alerting the hospital staff, said the police, adding that though the accused managed to flee, they have CCTV footage as proof.

The accused has been booked under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code.

The police have also initiated investigation against the hospital in Bahadurgarh as there were no security guards inside and outside the facility.
