Intern raped, doctor held

A doctor at Bara Hindu Rao Hospital has been arrested for allegedly raping a 23-year-old intern doctor inside the hospital premises on Tuesday night, the police said on Wednesday.

The police said the victim alleged that Dr. Gurdeep Singh, who works in the medicines department, had called her to the duty room on the pretext of having dinner on Tuesday.

Initially, she ignored the request but when the doctor insisted, she joined him. She claimed that the doctor was in an inebriated state and he locked the room and raped her.

“The woman stays in a PG accommodation near the hospital while the doctor stays on the hospital premises,” said a police official. Medical examination of the victim has confirmed assault, said the police.

An FIR has been filed and a probe has been initiated, said a senior police official.
