It was nothing but shocking details that questions out very conscience, that the Kerala woman who was brutally raped by a health inspector had to tell the police. Perhaps the entire nation feels humiliated to see how a health worker behaved with a young woman who approached the authority for a certificate that says she is COVID negative.
The FIR says that the woman was raped brutally after being tied to a bed.
The woman visited the health inspector at his home in Pangode on September 3. He attacked the woman immediately after she entered the house and then raped her after tying to a bed and using a cloth to gag her.
The woman told the police that the abuse continued all night long and that she was let go only the next morning.
The accused, who has been arrested, was brought to his house in Pangode for evidence collection. The forensic team also collected evidence from the house. He will be taken to the court and remanded by Monday evening.
Meanwhile, the Women’s Commission has registered a suo moto case against the health inspector and directed the state health secretary to initiate disciplinary action against him.
The other day another shocking news of an ambulance driver raping a young Covid-19 female patient inside an ambulance in Pathanamthitta district had surfaced. All these incidents indicate serious lapses on the part of the health department.
