    New Delhi/Nagpur: Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar has sought a report on the allegations of molestation made by a female doctor of the Indian Navy against her senior.

    On this issue I am not going to keep quiet. I have checked up and asked the Navy to look into it. I will see to it that fairness is maintained. The board has been constituted, the officer has been sent on leave and once the report is submitted , we shall take a call, Parrika said.

    In her complaint, the junior officer has accused her senior, a Surgeon Commander by rank, of having twice attempted molesting her over successive days earlier this month. The first instance allegedly took place inside the residence of Indian Navy Chief of Personnel Vice Admiral AR Karve, where the duo had gone to treat the admiral’s ailing mother.

    The accused Surgeon Commander was posted at INS India, the establishment looking after administrative and logistical requirements of the navy in the national capital. He was recently recognised for his meritorious service by the leadership of the Indian Navy.
