Mumbai: A 26-year-old doctor of a private hospital in Navi Mumbai was arrested for allegedly raping a woman admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the hospital, police said today.
The accused, Vishal Vanne, resident medical officer of Lotus Hospital in Vashi, has been accused of raping the 30-year-old married woman in ICU on Saturday night, police said.
The victim, a resident of Ghansoli in Navi Mumbai, was admitted to the hospital after she complained of giddiness and fatigue. She was initially kept in the general ward, but was later shifted to ICU when her condition turned critical.
“The lady was in a semi-conscious state and could comprehend that she was being raped but could not resist the accused or raise an alarm due to weakness,” investigating officer Rajkumar Chapekar said.
