Kendrapara, May 31: A shameful incident has come to the fore in Kendrapara district where a youth impersonating as a medico has reportedly molested a woman patient in a hospital in the name of check-up last night. The youth has been arrested.
According to information, the ghastly act has occurred in the Aul Community Health Centre (CHC). A woman from Aragal village was admitted to the CHC last night. She was suffering from diarrhoea. A youth came to her at around 11 pm and checked her. He identified him as a doctor of nearby Govindpur hospital.
The “doctor” sent the woman’s husband out of the room and reportedly touched the woman inappropriately. Seeing this, the woman’s husband came in and shouted at the fake doctor. However, he managed to flee from the hospital, taking advantage of the darkness.
Acting on the complaint of the woman, the Aul police inspected CCTV camera and traced the accused, identified as Deepak Mohanty of Bada Ambila village. He was arrested and court-forwarded today, said police.
