Gandhinagar: Two arrested after dengue patient alleges Apollo Hospital doc drugged, raped her

A doctor from Apollo hospital in Gujarat's Gandhinagar was arrested on Friday for allegedly raping a dengue patient in the ICU of the hospital earlier this week. The 21-year-old woman undergoing treatment for dengue filed an FIR with the local police and alleged that she was raped by a doctor and a ward boy over two days.

In the FIR, the woman said that a junior doctor raped her between 31 August and 2 September, PTI reported. According to NDTV, the survivor was raped first on Sunday when the accused — 28-year-old Ramesh Chauhan — was on the night shift.

"The girl has said that she was raped twice by the accused. She is still in the hospital and her allegation is being probed," inspector K K Pandya was quoted as saying by The Indian Express.

The woman was drugged before the doctor raped her and she could only reveal the details of the incident on Thursday in a letter to her uncle.

The hospital, in a statement, said they were fully cooperating with the police investigation. "The ward where the incident took place has 14 staff members working round the clock, and is equipped with CCTV cameras. We are co-operating fully with the police which are examining CCTV footage and carrying out investigation," Apollo Hospital PRO, Ankit Hingu said.
