Sundargarh ADMO accused of sexually harassing woman doctor – N.F Times

Sundargarh: A woman doctor has accused Sundargarh ADMO Dr. Prakash Bal of sexually harassing her at hospital. She has lodged a complaint in this regard at the Sundargarh Town police station.

The complainant alleged that Bal used to take her to his chamber and touch her inappropriately. The woman doctor also alleged that Bal once entered the rest room while she was present there and misbehaved with her after closing the door.

She further alleged that Bal has been misbehaving with other women doctors and nurses of the hospital. After she filed a complaint in this regard with the District Collector, a committee started investigating the matter, as per the direction of the official. However, the panel suppressed the incident, she alleged.

While police have registered a case and started probe, Bal said the allegations levelled against him are baseless. The doctors are not doing their duty properly and are resorting to filing complaint when they are asked to perform duties properly, he said.
