Jammu: A woman doctor has alleged that a Jammu and Kashmir minister misbehaved with her for not wearing an apron during an official function and filed a complaint, which was rejected by police.
"I was shocked by the by use of harsh words and misbehaviour with me in full public view by none other than Lal Singh, the Minister for Health (at function here). This has left me mentally harassed and wrecked," Registrar, Psychiatry Diseases Hospital, Jammu, Dr Gurmeet Kour said in her complaint against the BJP minister at police station Bakshi Nagar today.
"This amounts to outraging the modesty of a lady medical officer in full public view, consequently leading to defamation in public," she said in the complaint.
"During a function, Singh publicly shouted at me for not wearing apron and said who has invited you here and snapped his finger at me and further said 'tumhara kaam ho gaya chalo niklo' (your work is over, now go out).
"A complaint has been filed by a lady doctor against the minister and it has been rejected on the ground that it did not have substance," Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Jammu, Uttam Chand told PTI.
Reacting to the complaint, Lal Singh told reporters here that, "I told her to wear apron -- is it a misbehaviour... It was an official function, it was not a social function. All doctors were wearing aprons and were they wrong...".
