LUCKNOW: A 42-year-old woman, wife of a patient from Hardoi in Uttar Pradesh, was allegedly raped on the premises of the Shatabdi super speciality hospital in the prestigious King George’s Medical University (KGMU) by three men here late on Wednesday night. The police arrested two of the accused on Thursday while a search for the remaining culprit was on.

According to sources, as the woman left her ailing husband in the neurology ward to get dinner for him late in the night, she was waylaid in the lift by the liftman who took her to the fourth floor on the pretext of making food available to her since it was late and the canteen had closed.

As she reached the fourth floor with the liftman Vinay, two more persons, including security guard Shiv Kumar and a man called Santosh Kashyap, were waiting there. They pounced on her. Gagging her, all the three took turns to outrage her modesty.

Escaping them, the woman rushed to Chowk police station to lodge a complaint. In her complaint, she said after the incident the accused persons threatened to kill her if she informed anyone about it.

She said she had been staying on the hospital premises for quite some time to tend to her husband who recently underwent a surgery for a neurological problem.

Acting on her complaint, Chowk police raided the hospital arresting Shiv Kumar and Santosh Kashyap, while launching a search for absconding liftman Vinay.

The victim has been sent for medical examination.

The King George’s Medical University is one of the most prestigious medical colleges in north India. Such a brazen act on its premises comes as a loud statement highlighting the prevailing law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh and the ease with which anti-social elements are operating with no fear of law enforcement agencies.
