Vadodara: One of the prominent neurosurgeons in the town has been booked by local police over an allegation of rape made on him by a physiotherapist.
The case concerns a neurosurgeon who owns a private clinic in Akota. A physiotherapist who had been working in his clinic for the past 3-4 years recently came out making allegations of rape on him.
The physiotherapist is now in her thirties. She completed her degree in Bachelors in Physiotherapy in 2007. She then shifted to Canada. She returned to the city in 2012 and started hunting for a job. In 2013, she came in contact with the accused doctor who offered her a job in his hospital.

She further alleged that the doctor continued to have physical relations with her for three to four years. When she refused to give up on his demand, he allegedly threatened to make her intimate photos viral. The doctor also threatened her to finish off her career if she mentioned the case to anyone.
The woman then filed a complaint in JP Road police station.
