The services of two doctors, who worked at the jumbo facility in Pune, were terminated on Sunday after a colleague accused them of sexual harassment.
A case has been registered against the two doctors at Shivajinagar police station after the complainant approached the police. “We have received a complaint and we have spoken to the complainant,” said police inspector (crime) Manisha Zende of Shivajinagar police station, but she refused to share any further details about the case.
When asked about the incident, Rubal Agarwal, additional commissioner of Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) asked for the questions to be directed towards the management of the hospital and not her.
An official from the administration of the hospital, requesting anonymity, said, “The services of the two doctors have been terminated and the complainant has also requested for her services to be put on hold. We will speak with her at length on Monday and understand the situation better. They were friends who lived in the same hotel, worked similar hours, and ate at the same canteen. These all are young 24-25 year old doctors.”
The doctors were from a local private hospital and were employed at the Jumbo facility on the payroll of Best Services, according to the official.
“Two doctors were terminated yesterday (Saturday) immediately after we learned about the incident. An internal inquiry has been initiated in the case. We have spoken to the Dean. We have spoken to their colleagues as well. We will know more in a couple of days about the real culprits,” said Tejinder Singh, managing director, Best Services.
