Bihar | Woman in Covid isolation ward dies after doctor ‘rapes’ her


PATNA: A woman who was in a Covid isolation ward in a private hospital died after the doctor there allegedly raped her. Though the incident happened in Bihar, the woman was a Punjab native.

The two-month pregnant woman and her husband had reached Gaya only on March 25. In Ludhiana, she had a miscarriage. After reaching Gaya, she had severe bleeding, following which, she was admitted to hospital.

On April 1, she was shifted to isolation ward as she reportedly had Covid symptoms. She was discharged on April 4 after she tested negative for Coronavirus.

On April 6, she was again admitted to the hospital due to excessive bleeding. Later she died there.

Only after her death, her relatives spilled the beans. They revealed that the duty doctor in the ward had raped her in two consecutive nights.
The police have filed a case against the doctor, who is on the run.
