Chandigarh, Feb 14 (IANS) The Haryana Police on Sunday launched a manhunt for a man who allegedly sexually assaulted a new mother in a private hospital in the state’s Jhajjar district.
The woman, who was admitted to the hospital in Bahadurgarh town for delivery, alleged that a man had sexually assaulted her while she thought that he was a doctor come to examine her. The incident took place early on Saturday.
CCTV footage showed the man getting off a luxury car and walking into the hospital wearing a white coat like the one that doctors wear.
Police, based on another CCTV footage, said the same man later entered another private hospital and tried to repeat his act.
The victim, aged around 22 years, had delivered a child in the hospital through caesarean surgery barely hours before the incident, police said.
“We have got CCTV footage of the accused and raids are being conducted to nab him,” said Jhajjar district police chief Sumit Kumar.
Police are also questioning the hospital staff and security to ascertain how the man was able to walk so easily into the ICU wing and sexually assault the woman.
A case of rape has been registered.
