The victim’s father is said to be admitted in the same hospital and is undergoing treatment for a medical condition. He was admitted to the hospital on 21st June.
According to sources, the incident came to light when the victim narrated the incidence to her husband. The case was lodged after midnight at around 1:15am.
Hospital Administrator Dr. Amit Dhing has fired both the sweepers and canceled the contract, although he did not confirm the incident, saying, “at 9:30 the room opposite to O.P and the passage is always busy with lots of activities, how come nobody came to know about the happening”, said Dr. Dhing.
He also said that while checking the phone of Lalit, a misscall from the woman victim was found there, which makes the story more complicated.
