Lady doctor raped in a hospital in West Delhi

New Delhi: A doctor was allegedly raped and brutally assaulted on the night of September 20 in a room in the Doctors hostel of ESI Hospital in Raja Garden.

The doctor was interning at the hospital that was to end that very day.

“It is obvious from the marks in the body that this is a case of rape and murder that was carefully planned. But the body was cleverly removed from the area,” says the victim’s brother in law, Ashwani Jain.

Hospital authorities deny the involvement of any hospital staff in the incident. They question the credibility of the victim herself.

“She was not allotted accommodation by the hostel so her question of coming to the hostel is strange and unauthorised,” says med supdt, ESI Hospital, J N Mohanty.

The police have chosen to register a case of attempt to rape and murder against the unknown assailants.

"We came to know about the case when the victim's relative took her to Action Balaji Hospital and the doctors told us that the case was very suspicious in nature as there were marks of injury,” says DCP (West), Delhi Police, Robin Hibu.

This is not for the first time that a case of this gruesome nature has taken place in the hospitals of Delhi.

But the fact that the family of the victim had to approach the media to get their side heard is a telling comment on the sensitivity of the Delhi Police in cases of this nature.
