Delhi’s Court grants bail to doctor couple in POCSO case

New Delhi : The Rohini Sessions Court Judge JItendra Singh has granted anticipatory bail to the male doctor and regular bail to the female gynaecologist who are husband and wife in a case registered against them under POCSO Act. The court while granting bail to the female gynaecologist acknowledged that there has been no complaint against her under PNDT neither she has been accused of illegal termination of pregnancy till date. He further added that the accused has cooperated in investigation by providing all the records and hence her bail plea has been accepted.

The Rohini Police has lodged an FIR against the doctor couple on the basis of the statement of the Prosecutrix wherein she has alleged that she was raped by the co-accused several times and that her abortion was done in the nursing home where the gynaecologist was present. The Prosecutrix has made allegations against her boyfriend/co-accused and accused that her abortion was done on May, October and December by the gynaecologist. This led to the arrest of the gynaecologist by the Rohini Police. Interestingly the boyfriend of the prosecutrix was granted anticipatory bail but the gynaecologist was arrested. The Rohini police conducted raids on the clinic of gynaecologist but failed to get evidence of pregnancy or abortion of the prosecutrix.
