So, an FIR was registered by her on Saturday. Shivajinagar police station officials had refused to give any more details; however, no arrest was done till Sunday night.

Shivajinagar police officials had booked the two doctors under IPC Section 354 relating to ‘Assault or criminal force to woman intending to disgrace her modesty’. The accused doctors and complainant were hired by the agency which is running the facility.

The jumbo COVID facility was in a controversy after the relatives of a 33-year-old woman patient said that she went missing after being discharged on 5th September. The family was informed to take her on 13th September. According to the family members, the woman was suffering from psychiatric problems.

Currently, Medbros agency is handling the jumbo COVID facility and senior civic officers are posted round the clock to monitor its functioning and alsosolve citizens’ problems.
