In an appalling case of crime against women, a 63-year-old doctor has been accused of molesting a minor girl at his residence in Khar.

According to Times of India, the victim's mother had registered a complaint with the Khar police alleging that the doctor had molested her 14-year-old daughter on April 14.

In the complaint, the mother had said that she had forgotten her keys at the doctor's residence and asked her daughter to fetch them. When the girl went to the doctor's residence, he tried to take advantage of the situation.

"The accused began kissing the minor and started hugging her when she entered his house to collect the keys," said a police officer.
