Gujarat: Doctor rapes 21 year old dengue patient in hospital's ICU
A doctor at Apollo Hospital in Gandhinagar, Gujarat has been arrested for allegedly raping a dengue patient in the ICU earlier this week.

The 21-year-old woman has alleged that the doctor and a hospital worker raped her on two days. The woman had been admitted to the hospital on Saturday and was undergoing treatment for dengue and had been shifted to the ICU when her condition deteriorated.

She has alleged that she was first sexually assaulted on Sunday by the doctor while he was on the night shift.

She has alleged that before raping her, the 28 year old doctor gave her some drug that left her almost unconscious. The ward boy who allegedly participated in the crime has also been arrested.

A medical examination has confirmed rape. The police have also confirmed that she was heavily drugged and managed to reveal what had happened only yesterday.

"Two people have been arrested after a dengue patient was allegedly raped by doctor and hospital ward boy in Ahmedabad. The woman said in her FIR that a doctor who was treating her for dengue at Apollo Hospital raped her somewhere during three days before September 3," the police said.

The police have registered a case against the doctor under sections 376 (C)(D) of the IPC for rape.

The hospital said that they have provided CCTV footage from the hospital to assist the police with their 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 footages and carrying out investigation," Apollo Hospital PRO, Ankit Hingu said in a statement.
