New Delhi:A 23-year-old intern working at the Bara Hindu Rao Hospital was allegedly raped by a doctor inside the hospital. The intern approached the police with her complaint on Tuesday night, after which the accused was arrested.

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

 

Initially, she ignored the request. However, 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 survivor had joined the hospital as an intern in the general medicine department a month ago. During this period, the accused had started getting friendly with her. On Tuesday, when she reached his room, he started misbehaving with her. He then locked the door and forced himself on her.  

The accused even allegedly threatened to give the victim negative marking if she resisted his attempt. He let the woman leave after threatening her with dire consequences.
