Woman is untraceable, inquiry is based on CCTV footage and eyewitness statements

Third-year resident doctor of Surat Municipal Institute of Medical Education and Research (SMIMER), Rutvik Darji, was suspended on Wednesday for allegedly assaulting a Thai woman in the institute’s boys’ hostel. 

Darji will remain suspended pending inquiry by the dean of the institute, Dr Deepak Hovale. The action against Darji follows a preliminary inquiry by a five-member committee. Darji was also issued a show cause notice asking him to reply to the charges against him.

Darji, a resident doctor in the orthopaedic department, allegedly brought a foreign national woman into the boys’ hostel on June 8 and assaulted her.

The woman is currently untraceable and the institute is unable to gather details from her side. The inquiry is based on the CCTV footage and eyewitness statements.  

Eyewitness accounts 

Eyewitnesses said that the woman had come out of Darji’s room in a semi-nude condition while shouting ‘danger’ at the top of her voice. Darji, who was partially clothed was seen chasing the girl who ran about 300 metres in the same condition before entering the police chowki inside the SMIMER campus.

The woman told the cops that Darji had attacked her and slapped her multiple times. Following this, a woman cop posted at the police chowki called the police control room. The woman had refused to lodge an FIR despite a police request. Later, the cops informed the SMIMER authorities.

A report has been submitted to the Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) for further action. A departmental inquiry has been initiated against Darji. 

Sources in SMIMER claimed that Darji was suspended from the college for six months for allegedly attacking a junior doctor in August 2023. The attack was captured on CCTV camera.
