A 30-year-old female doctor, who runs a private clinic in Saket, has accused Dr Hamid Bashir, a cardiologist at Max Hospital, Saket in south Delhi, of molesting her at the hospital, where she had gone for a cardio test, on the pretext of physical examination. The incident occurred on Sunday morning.
According to a senior police official close to the investigation, an FIR under section 354 (molestation) of IPC has been lodged against Dr Hamid Bashir at the Saket police station. The police also arrested Dr Bashir and later released him on bail “as it was a non-cognizable offence”.
Max Healthcare has also instituted an internal enquiry in the matter. “The organization is cooperating, fully, with the investigating authorities and has also reached out to the patient proactively. We are hopeful that the truth shall emerge as the law takes its course,” Max Healthcare has said. [Source: Mid Day]
