A senior doctor at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences allegedly raped a colleague at a house party in the Hauz Khas area of south Delhi in the last week of September, the police said on Friday.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) Benita Mary Jaiker said information was received on October 11 regarding a medico legal certificate regarding sexual harassment at AIIMS.

“When police reached AIIMS, the victim — also a doctor — stated that on September 26, one of the senior doctors had forced himself on her when she went to the room during celebration of a colleague’s birthday,” the officer said.
