New Delhi: In Gurgaon at a top private hospital a 21-year-old woman, suffering from tuberculosis was allegedly raped last week at the intensive care unit said the police.
The patient wrote about the alleged sexual assault in the note that she gave to her father and also sued gestures to share her ordeal on Tuesday as she regained consciousness after six days.
On October 21 the woman was admitted to the hospital and was placed on a ventilator, as per an FIR filed at the city's Sushant Lok Police station, which underlined that she was experiencing breathing difficulties.
The police are trying to find out if Vikas the accused named by the woman works at the hospital. The woman was sexually assaulted between October 21 and 27, told her father to the police.
Also, the family has requested that her medical check-up should be conducted at the government hospital.
The policemen who visited the hospital to record her statement after the complaint was filed were today by the doctors that she was not in the condition to talks to the cops.
"We are probing the case. We are trying to find out if Vikas worked at the hospital. The woman's parents are not aware of it. We would be able to get clarity once we get a statement from the patient. We are probing the CCTV footage from the hospital as well to get clues," police officer Masood Ahmad told reporters.
The incidents come weeks after the alleged rape, torture, and death of the Dalit woman from UP's Hathras triggered nationwide anger.
The family alleged she was attacked by the four men of the so-called upper caste. The Supreme Court, earlier this week, said the Allahabad High Court will monitor the probe.
