An 18-year-old girl in Pune has accused a doctor of sedating and raping her on the pretext of treatment. According to the girl, this incident happened in Dhankawadi area in the city in September last year when she went to the doctor’s clinic for treatment.

According to the police, the doctor allegedly gave her sedatives through an injection, which made her lose consciousness. He then allegedly raped her. The girl claimed that she was threatened by the doctor to keep quiet. The HT reported, “The police officials said that Dr Shah examined her and gave her a tablet for consumption, following which she became unconscious. Before giving her the tablet, she was administered an injection. After taking the tablet, the victim fell unconscious, following which he raped her.”

When she regained consciousness, Dr Shah reportedly threatened to kill her and her parents with a pistol if she spoke about the incident.
