Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh) [India], Nov. 11 (ANI): Two doctors of Madhya Pradesh's Sultania Women Hospital have been suspended over an erroneous medical report that said the gangrape victim, a 19-year-old civil services aspirant, indulged in consensual sex with the culprits.

Bhopal Public Health and Family Welfare Commissioner Ajatshatru Srivastav had earlier on Thursday issued a notice to the doctors over 'a serious lapse in the medical report'.

Earlier, a senior doctor of the hospital had clarified that the medical reports of the victim were incorrect and had been rectified.

Dr Karan Peepre, Superintendent of the Sultania Women Hospital, said the erroneous report was made by a new joinee.

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

Earlier this month, 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)
