Kochi: Kerala Government Medical College Teachers Association (KGMCTA) Ernakulam unit secretary Dr KS Faisal Ali on Thursday has come out against a female police officer over the POCSO case against fake antique dealer Monson Mavunkal. He alleged that the woman cop obstructed the medical examination of the girl who had accused Monson Mavunkal of sexually assaulting her. During the medical examination of the girl, the police officer went into the room and took the girl away without allowing her to complete the examination, Dr KS Faisal Ali told mathrubhumi.com.

Earlier, the girl complained that she was locked in a labour room when she arrived for a medical examination and the doctors spoke in favour of Monson. However, the KGMCTA officials dismissed her complaint as baseless.

Meantime, the crime branch had registered a case against two doctors of the gynaecology department in Kalamassery Medical College in connection with the girl's complaint. The police also questioned the doctors on Wednesday.

On October 28, the girl was referred from Aluva General Hospital to the gynaecology department of Kalmassery Medical College Hospital for a medical examination. According to OP records of the hospital, the police arrived at the gynaecology department around 1.30 pm for the examination. The girl was examined by an assistant professor who was on duty at the time on the instructions of the head of the gynaecology department.

KGMCTA claims that the girl was then forcibly taken out of the hospital around 3 pm.

Following this, the doctor on duty had lodged a written complaint with the medical college authorities on the same day stating that the examination could not be completed. Dr Faisal Ali added that the matter could be clarified by examining the documents and CCTV footage of the medical college.
