New Delhi: Another shocking rape case has put a question mark on women safety in the country as a senior doctor with the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) allegedly raped his colleague, who came to attend his house party in South Delhi’s Hauz Khas.

According to the police, the incident took place when the doctor went to her senior’s house to attend a party. “We received a call on Monday regarding sexual harassment of a doctor from AIIMS. We went to the hospital and found that the victim got her MLC (medico-legal examination) done. She told the investigating officer that on September 29 she went to attend the birthday party of her colleague in Hauz Khas when her senior raped her inside his room,” said Benita Mary Jaiker, DCP (South).
Based on the woman’s statement, a case was registered under Sections 376 (rape) and 377 (unnatural offences) of the IPC (Indian Penal Code) at the Hauz Khas police station. Cops tried contacting the accused doctor and conducted several raids in Delhi, but without success. Meanwhile, the woman’s statement was recorded before a magistrate.
