ISLAMABAD: The capital police booked a doctor of Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (Pims) on charges of raping his colleague, police said on Friday.

The case was registered with Karachi Company police station under PPC 376 in response to a complaint lodged by the lady doctor.

According to the first information report (FIR), both doctors had known each other for almost one year and during this period, the lady doctor had also gotten a case registered against him on the charge of manhandling her.

However, she pardoned him after he tendered apology, the FIR said, adding that in November 2021 he again approached her and asked her to marry him. At first she refused but later accepted the proposal.

In December 2021, he called her to his office in Karachi Company where they accepted each other as husband and wife in the presence of a man.

Some times later, when the lady doctor asked the accused to disclose the marriage, he misbehaved with her and denied that they were married, the FIR said. The woman said she had considered him her husband but he had dishonored her and requested the police to register a rape case against him.

The Karachi Company police said the case had been registered and investigation was in progress. So far the accused has not been arrested, they added.
