Mumbai: The Thane police has arrested a well-known fertility doctor after he allegedly raped a 21-year-old woman who visited his clinic for a check up around 7.30 pm on Saturday. He allegedly asked her to remove her clothes and began to touch her inappropriately. When she shouted, the doctor, Pratik Tambe, allegedly shut her mouth, raped her and issued threats, warning her of dire consequences if she complained to the police. The Thane crime branch unit is conducting a background check on Tambe to find out if he had similarly targeted other female patients.  The complainant is not a resident of Thane city.”

According to the complaint registered against Tambe, he forbade nurses from entering the check-up room before asking the woman to remove her clothes. He then allegedly applied a gel on her private parts and started touching her inappropriately.According to a crime branch officer, Tambe allegedly removed his own clothes and tried to molest the girl. After she attempted to shout for help, he held her mouth shut and then stuffed a duppata into it before raping her. “Later on, he threatened her into silence. The woman was asked to leave and given money to reach home. She then approached the crime branch and narrated her ordeal,” he said.


Thane police PRO, S. Narkar said, “We have arrested Tambe and got his custody till Tuesday. We are checking whether he had done any such things earlier.”

In January, a 42-year-old doctor attached to a hospital in Thane, who was found guilty of molesting a patient in the ICU, had been convicted and jailed by a court.

In another incident, the Chembur police arrested  a doctor for allegedly molesting a woman.
