Bhubaneswar: A man, who posed as a doctor, was arrested for allegedly molesting a patient in a state-run hospital in Odisha, police said Wednesday.
He was arrested Tuesday after a nurse lodged a complaint.

Accused Karunakar Mohanty (36) works as a junior laboratory technician at Sriram Chandra Bhanja (SCB) Medical College and Hospital in Cuttack, 26 km from the state capital Bhubaneswar.

Mangalabag police station inspector-in-charge SK Sarifuddin told reporters that Mohanty allegedly entered the gynaecology ward in an inebriated condition Tuesday and molested a 28-year-old woman, recuperating after delivery.
The man had allegedly procured a doctor`s identity card and on the pretext of conducting routine check-up, touched the patient`s private parts.

The on-duty nurse rushed to the spot upon hearing the cries of the patient and her attendants.
