Mumbai: Doctor accused of sexual assault denied bail | Mumbai News


MUMBAI: A special court on Monday rejected the anticipatory bail plea of a now sacked doctor, accused of sexually assaulting a 44-year-old male Covid-19 patient in the ICU of Wockhardt hospital on May 1.
The court held that the custodial interrogation of the 33-year-old accused was necessary. Refuting the doctor’s defence that he was falsely implicated, the court said there is no reason for the hospital to lodge a false report.
“If anticipatory bail will be granted to applicant, there is every possibility that applicant may pressurize victim and other witnesses,” the court said.
