In an appalling incident, a woman who works as a junior doctor at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Bhubaneswar has claimed that she was asked to vacate her flat and was threatened with rape by an office-bearer of her housing society.
The accused allegedly told the doctor that she would be raped if she did not vacate the flat at the earliest. According to the accused man, the presence of the woman would expose the rest of society to coronavirus.
However, the police registered a case against the accused. He was booked for criminal intimidation.
In her FIR, the doctor stated that the office-bearer asked her to vacate the flat as she works at AIIMS and treats COVID-19 patients. The complainant said that over the last week, she had been constantly subjected to harassment by the accused. However, she turned to the police on Sunday, after the accused threatened her with rape.
The FIR read, “We have been living in our flat for several years in Khandagiri area. But a society office-bearer, his wife and two sons hurled abuses at me and asked me to leave. While the nation cheers healthcare professionals as warriors, the office-bearer said that I might spread novel coronavirus in the society as I am a doctor. “
As per a national daily report, the doctor also clarified that she is not involved in the treatment of coronavirus patients.
After the doctor filed the complaint, society lodged a counter-complaint against the family of the woman. In its complaint, the society claimed that the woman’s family misbehaved with office-bearers.
