A 26-year-old doctor from Mumbai was recently arrested by the Mumbai police after the Supreme Court rejected his bail plea. The man was booked for rape, unnatural offences and cheating a woman, along with sections of the Atrocities Act, after he made jibes about the woman’s caste.

The MIDC police said the 26-year-old woman and the doctor met in 2012 as they live in the same area. They dated for a year, after which he promised to marry her. However, he broke up with her and then started dating another doctor.

When the women insisted he marry her, the doctor made jibes about her case. In June last year, the woman asked police to file a case against him.

The doctor filed a pre-arrest bail plea in the sessions court and then the Bombay high court. However, both rejected him. He then approached the Supreme Court, which rejected his plea last month.

He surrendered before the MIDC police in Andheri (East) and was remanded in police custody. The sessions court case was transferred to an assistant commissioner of police.
