Ernakulam: A female doctor has come forward with grave allegations of sexual assault against a senior doctor at Ernakulam General Hospital. In a courageous move, the female doctor took to social media to share her account of a distressing incident that allegedly occurred during her house surgery in 2019, accusing the senior doctor of forcibly kissing her on the face.
The revelation was made through a Facebook post…
The hospital’s superintendent confirmed that they have taken the matter seriously and have initiated a formal inquiry. Upon seeking information from the female doctor regarding the incident, a formal complaint has been filed with the director of the health department. It is expected that the complaint will subsequently be forwarded to the police for a thorough investigation.
The female doctor claims that she had also reported the alleged incident to senior hospital officials the day after it occurred, but her previous complaints did not yield any apparent results. She has since stated that her decision to make the allegations public came after the accused doctor moved away from Ernakulam General Hospital.
