New Delhi: The internal inquiry by AIIMS
against a doctor, who is facing charges of sexual abuse of an
eight-year-old boy, has found that the physician was guilty of
professional misconduct but it was silent on the charges,
the police said today.

Police has received the report prepared by the AIIMS
panel on Saturday, the official said.

According to the official, the panel has accused the
doctor of professional negligence but did not charge him with
sexual abuse.

"We are investigating the case", the official said.

Delhi Police had on January 31 registered a case
following a complaint of the parents of an eight-year-old
brain tumour patient.

The boy`s family approached the police after filing a
complaint with the hospital authorities.

The family claimed that the boy was sodomised
allegedly by the doctor on January 23. The boy, a resident of
north-east Delhi`s Hardevpuri, was admitted to the hospital on
January 18 and had undergone a surgery two days later.

However, a junior doctor allegedly sodomised him on
January 23, a day before he was to be discharged from the
hospital, the family claimed.

The boy`s father said they wrote everything the child
told them in the complaint. The father alleged that the doctor
took the child to the duty room and abused him sexually.
