A 23 years old woman who just gave birth through a C-Section has been reportedly raped on her bed at Brahm Shakti Sanjivani Hospital, located in Bahadurgah, India.

She mentioned that it took her a long time to realise that she was being violated.

Narrating her account of the incident, she said, “He put his hand on my mouth to muzzle me, then touched me inappropriately and sexually assaulted me,”

“He also checked my medical files, and drew the curtains closed. He assaulted me again. Then he walked out.”

India is now world renowned as a country with a very high rate of rapes on a yearly basis.
