Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh) [India], November 9 (ANI): Bhopal Public Health and Family Welfare Commissioner Ajatshatru Srivastav on Thursday issued a notice to doctors over an erroneous report that said a gangrape victim, a 19-year-old civil services aspirant, indulged in consensual sex with culprits.

He further asked them how such a serious lapse in a medical report can occur.

Srivastav's statement came hours after a senior doctor clarified that the medical reports of the victim were incorrect and had been rectified.

Earlier in the day, Dr Karan Peepre, Superintendent of the Sultania Women Hospital, said the erroneous report was made by a new comer.

Speaking to ANI, Dr Peepre, said, "It was a mistake by a newcomer and now, the report has been rectified and issued again."

On Thursday, the 19-year-old was abducted by four men and was allegedly gangraped near the Habibganj Railway Station in Bhopal.

All the four accused have been arrested. (ANI)
