Driver rapes Covid patient in ambulance: Hearing to begin on June 3
Pathanamthitta: Hearing in the case where a Covid patient was sexually attacked by an ambulance driver while shifting her to a Covid special centre, will begin on June 3. The case will be heard by the Pathanamthitta Principal Sessions Court.
The court will first hear the statement of the victim and then the 94 witnesses in the case. After all this, the accused Noufal, 25, will be heard.
The charge sheet stated that the ambulance driver Noufal had sexually assaulted the girl while shifting her to a Covid special centre on September 5. When the charge sheet was read out to the accused, he had dismissed the charges.
However, after the incident, the audio clipping where the accused was seen apologising to the victim, mobile phone tower location, details of the ambulance GPS and other details have proved major evidence in the case.
District government pleader A C Eapen will appear for the government in the case.
