Two men allegedly raped a woman prisoner in a government hospital in Muzaffarpur, Bihar, on the 14th of November.
The case came to light after the victim, a prisoner of the Sitamarhi Jail, reported the incident to the Superintendent of Ahiyapur Police Station in Muzaffarpur, after she came back from the Sri Krishna Medical College and Hospital.
The victim was admitted to the hospital on the 11th of November to undergo treatment. She was raped by two policemen, Sailesh Kumar and Chotelal Kumar, in the washroom of the hospital, on the 14th of November.
