Doc. Suspended for attempted sexual abuse of pregnant patient

Director General of Health Services Dr. Ajith Mendis has suspended a doctor attached to the Sri Jayawardenepura Teaching Hospital, following an investigation into an allegation that he attempted to sexually abuse a pregnant woman.

Health sources said that this would be brought to the notice of the Sri Lanka Medical Council for further action.

Sources said that investigations carried out by the hospital administration, as well as the Ministry had faulted the doctor.

Over a year ago, a 23-year-old garment worker was allegedly strangled to death by a doctor attached to the Negombo hospital and her body thrown from the sixth floor of a building. The doctor recently received bail pending further judicial inquiries.
