Indore (Madhya Pradesh): A 55-year-old was allegedly sexually harassed by a ward boy and his aide at Maharaja Yeshwantrao Hospital on Tuesday night, sources said on Wednesday.
The incident took place at ward number -28 on the fifth floor of the hospital. The victim requested help from the accused for administering enema. The accused took her to the washroom and sexually harassed her.
According to sources, the victim was admitted to the hospital due to renal disorders and for dialysis. She was accompanied by her 14-15 year old son.
“The victim was feeling uncomfortable at night. She asked the ward boy, who was sleeping outside the ward with his aide, to help her in administering enema. Accused asked her to pay Rs 50 for the same and took her to the washroom to administer enema. They started molesting her. She somehow escaped from there,” said a hospital staff member wishing anonymity.
Though the victim has not lodged any written complaint to the police and hospital administration, she has informed the CMO on duty.
The hospital administration has constituted a committee to probe into the matter. “I also learned about the incident of misbehaviour with a woman but didn’t receive any written complaint or information. We have informed the police to probe in the matter and also constitute a committee to launch an internal enquiry of the incident,” superintendent of MY Hospital Dr PS Thakur said.
