Two weeks ago a ward boy and a medical student were arrested for allegedly raping a nursing student while she was admitted at a hospital in UP's Bagpat. The 17-year-old student was raped at midnight, when her sister, who was attending on her, had gone out to get tea, police officer Shailesh Kumar Pandey told news agency IANS.
The accused took the nursing student to the emergency room on the pretext of running some tests and injected her with a sedative and raped her, said the police.
