Mysuru, July 10:- An attempt to rape a 30-year-old mentally-challenged woman at K R Hospital in the city has been reported. The incident reportedly took place more than a week back.
The miscreant tried to enter the ward through the window and tried to rape the woman. Though the incident was reported to the doctors, no action has been taken so far. Is there a move to bury the case?
In fact, it is the State Human Rights Commission that has mentioned the case. An old lady, who was staying in the same ward on the day of the incident, had complained to the doctor. KR Hospital staff allegedly manhandled the old lady and asked her to feign ignorance about the case.
Based on the complaint filed by the State Human Rights Commission, Devaraja Police came to the hospital to verify. Strangely, there was no one to talk to the police about the incident. The news has sent shocking waves among the inmates. (MR/KS)
