Dentist booked for rape and abetment of suicide

Mumbai: The Kurar police has booked a dentist a week after a teenage girl died by suicide on charges of raping the girl and abetting her suicide. The minor girl, aged 17, was working as a compounder at the dentist’s clinic and she ended her life in the clinic by hanging herself. The family alleged that the doctor used to sexually exploit and beat the girl and stopped her from talking to anyone else either in person or on the phone. This lead to the girl’s mental condition being deteriorated which likely pushed her to resort to such a grave measure. 

Based on a complaint of the family members, Kurar police registered a case on Thursday under the Indian Penal Code sections related to rape, the Juvenile Justice Act and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO Act).
