Doctor held in Dibrugarh for alleged rape of woman colleague

A doctor working at a private hospital in Assam’s Dibrugarh district was arrested on June 24 for allegedly raping a female colleague, police said.

The doctor was arrested after a woman physician, working at the same hospital, lodged a complaint at the Borbori police station, alleging that her “male colleague raped her in a drunken condition” on June 23 night after duty hours, police said.

After a preliminary inquiry, a case under Sections 376 (rape) and 328 (causing harm) of the Indian Penal Code was lodged against the accused, a police officer from Dibrugarh said.

The woman, who hails from Dadra and Nagar Haveli, has been sent for a medical examination.

The medical examination of the accused has also been conducted, and further probe is on.
