A senior doctor at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Delhi, allegedly raped his junior colleague during a birthday party inside the campus. The accused has been absconding after the incident.
The incident took place on September 26, but the information about it was revealed on October 11. The rapist, a married man, and the victim were invited to a birthday party by one of her colleagues.
