  1. It will be unfair to comment on the concerned Doctor unless one knows the person personally, and knows about his reputation and character. There are already two contradictory opinions posted about the Doctor where one writes he is known for his molesting behavior and the other writes he is well reputed and has no complaints throughout his carrier. It is only the fair investigating agency to bring out the facts which seems very difficult to prove in the wake of lack of evidence. May the fair investigations be done in this case and justice is done to both the accused and complainant.

  2. This doctor is well known for his molesting behaviour. This is not the first case. Each and every time he bribes and gets away.

    It is a business like Mee Too..any Pat can walk me and can allege doctor for doing wrong,after all doctors are easy target. Easiest way out to pour in some money and your enemy is gone. Dr Jha is well reputed doctor and has been prof. there are no complaints throughout his carrier. The lady suddenly gets up from sleep and alleged.
