Mumbai medico suicide: Two more women doctors nabbed

Mumbai Police arrested two more accused lady doctors in connection with the alleged abetment of suicide of a medico, Payal Tadvi, police said here on Wednesday.
The accused -- Hema Ahuja and Ankita Khandelwal -- were nabbed early in the day, Mumbai Police Spokesperson DCP Manjunath Shinge told IANS.
Ahuja, Khandelwal and their colleague, Bhakti Meher -- who was arrested on Tuesday -- have been accused of alleged ragging, casteist atrocities, mental harassment and professional torture leading to the suicide of Tadvi, a second year post-graduate gynaecology student, at the state-run BYL Nair Hospital here on May 22.
The accused three, who were suspended by the Maharashtra Association of Resident Doctors and later by the BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation, have also filed an anticipatory bail application which would come up before the court later in the day.
Tadvi's mother, Abeda Tadvi, who is leading the agitation seeking justice for her daughter, plans to challenge the pre-arrest bail pleas, her lawyer Nitin Satpute told IANS.
