A day after a doctor allegedly raped a woman in the intensive care unit of a hospital in Navi Mumbai, a similar case surfaced in the Capital.
A 28-year-old woman, suffering from brain tumour, accused a doctor of Aakash Hospital in Malviya Nagar of molesting her thrice on Sunday. The doctor (26) was arrested and terminated from service.
The victim was admitted in the emergency ward of the South Delhi hospital on Saturday night after she complained of high fever.
"The doctor came to conduct a medical check-up around 11 pm. He molested me in the presence of my husband first. We ignored it thinking it was not deliberate," she said.
"After my husband left, the doctor returned and sexually harassed me. On Sunday morning, he repeated the heinous act. No nurse or fellow doctor was accompanying him during the check-ups," the victim added.
