Dr RathnakarMangaluru: A government doctor, accused of sexual harassment at workplace, was released on bail on Monday. Advocate N Narasimha Hegde, representing district leprosy officer Dr Ratnakar, accused in the case, said that the III JMFC court granted the accused bail on the grounds that none of the aggrieved had filed a complaint against him, and the one who has complained had no direct connection with the case. Also, since he is a government doctor, his services are needed, the advocate said.

Pictures and videos of indecent behaviour by the government doctor had gone viral on Friday. Based on a complaint filed by a representative of a women’s organisation, a case was registered at the women’s police station, against Dr Ratnakar. The police arrested the accused the next day, and he was produced before a court that granted him two days police custody that ended on Monday. Meanwhile, the police had also recorded the statements of the survivors.
