Madurai: A doctor has been arrested for allegedly raping a 16-year old girl who had come for treatment at a private hospital in Madurai, police said on Tuesday.

When the girl told her relatives that she had been raped, locals surrounded the hospital.

The doctor locked himself inside his room and refused to come out, fearing that he would be assaulted, police said, adding, they had to break open the door and arrest him.
