The Warangal police on Wednesday arrested five persons for attempting to implicate a doctor on false accusations of misbehaving with a woman. The police, based on video evidence, concluded that the accused had made false allegations against the doctor. The police have also established the role of a person identified as Nageswar Rao, a resident of Bank Colony, who allegedly paid Rs 1.30 lakh to Rauthu Rambabu to frame the doctor. The police have found the motive to be personal enmity.   

“Nageshwar Rao had even told Rambabu that he would even pay Rs 5 lakh if the doctor was booked under the SC/ST Act,” the police said. Both Rambabu and Nomula Venkateshwar Rao confessed to the crime, police said, according to Telangana Today.
 
The police have arrested five persons, including Revaju Sandhya, who had accused the doctor of misbehaving with her. Others accused were identified as Rauthu Rambabu, Nomula Venkateshwar Rao and Nallakonda Amarnath.

On June 12, Revaju Sandhya went to Balaji Hospital in Matwada, Warangal complaining of pain in her lower back. 

CCTV footage shows that when the woman was being treated by Dr P Sudhir Kumar in the presence of two other female medical personnel as well as another four people who were sitting in the waiting area of the outpatient clinic, she accuses the doctor of misbehaving with her when the doctor asks her to turn around to examine her body.  

Soon, a person accompanying her picked up an argument with the doctor and others, including the woman's husband, created a ruckus in the hospital and allegedly attempted to steal his phone.

Subsequently, Sandhya approached Matwada police and made allegations against the doctor and accused him of misbehaving with her. Based on her complaint, the police filed a case against the doctor under section 354 (Assault or criminal force against a woman with intent to outrage her modesty) of the Indian Penal Code. The doctor too filed a case against the persons accompanying Sandhya and accused them of attacking him. The police then filed an FIR under sections 385 (Putting a person in fear of injury in order to commit extortion), 448 (Punishment for house-trespass), 506 (Punishment for criminal intimidation), as well as under the Andhra Pradesh Medical Protection Act.

The police have filed cases against a total of 11 persons involved in the conspiracy. While five people have been arrested, the other six accused are absconding.
