According to sources in the PGIMER administration, a junior resident doctor from the general surgery department was found peeping in the bathroom where a woman doctor was taking bath. The woman identified the colleague who was peeping from top of the wall and raised the alarm.

Following that, a complaint was made to dean Dr Amod Gupta, who is also academic head of the institute.

The sources revealed that the incident took place in the resident doctors' hostel located above Kairon Block, where both male and female doctors stay. There are common bathrooms for male and female doctors in the hostel.
