In a shocking incident, a 58-year-old doctor from Mumbai's Jogeshwari (East) was arrested on Saturday after he was found guilty of repeatedly raping a 27-year-old patient and also for blackmailing her and further circulating an obscene video he recorded of her online.

"The matter goes back to 2015 when the woman visited Dr. Vanshraj Dwivedi to get treated for piles. The woman on her second visit was made unconscious by the doctor who then proceeded to make a video of her, which he used to blackmail her in order to sexually exploit her," according to an official. The man was relentlessly making phone calls to her, even after she got married. When she refused to pick up his calls, he allegedly circulated the obscene videos online. The woman then explained the situation to her husband, who filed a complaint.

An FIR has been registered on the accused under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code. He has been remanded in judicial custody until October 17.
