Doctor molests minor during check-up, held

The victim, a Class VI student of a government school and a resident of Palam in south Delhi, had Monday afternoon gone for a check-up at a clinic where Harpal Singh, in his 40s, misbehaved with her.

He was arrested after the girl's parents lodged a police complaint.

Singh, from Moradabad in Uttar Pradesh, was staying at Sangam Vihar in south Delhi.

The victim, daughter of a bus conductor, had complained of an intense pain on her neck Nov 24. She along with her neighbour, went to a clinic in Palam village.

Harpal Singh conducted the victim's medical check-up and prescribed her some medicines for three days and asked her to get a blood test done, a police officer said.

The girl and her father went to the clinic for a blood test Sunday. The next day, the victim along with her neighbour collected the blood test report from the clinic and showed it to Singh.

"Singh told her that he needed to physically examine the victim and took her to a room and closed the doors. He misbehaved with her on pretext of examining her. When the girl felt uncomfortable, she screamed and ran out," the police complaint says.

The doctor has been booked for molestation, wrongful confinement and criminal intimidation.
