Teen gangraped allegedly by hospital worker and 4 others inside ICU

In a horrific incident, a teenager was gang-raped, allegedly by a hospital worker and four other persons, inside the ICU of a hospital in Uttar Pradesh's Bareilly.

The girl was admitted in the ICU of a private hospital five days ago, after she suffered a snake bite while working in her family farm. Police have arrested a member of the hospital staff, and are on the lookout for the other 4 members. The girl was the only patient inside the ICU when she was gang-raped.

"She narrated the incident after she was shifted to the general ward. A case has been registered and an investigation is underway," senior police officer A Singh told ANI. An FIR has been registered against the hospital staff and four of his aides. CCTV footage of the ICU has been seized by police for further investigation.

The girl told her grandmother that a man in uniform and four others walked into the ICU when she was alone at night. They tried to forcefully give her an injection and when she fought them, the men gagged her and tied her hands and raped her, the teenager said. Her grandmother raised an alarm and complained to the doctors about the incident and the hospital authorities called the police.
