    No doubt both are highly educated and working in a same place. Need a detailed investigation whether both were in love or something else. For a sudden temptation I doubt she must be responsible to some extent. But it will be difficult for men to prove. If he has been an habitual offender then he must be put behind the bars. Whatever the matter but kissing in lift without consent couldn't be tolerated

    If this story turns out true - the only question runs into my mind is HOW SAFE ARE YOUNG GIRL PATIENTS UNDER SUCH A DOCTOR A detailed investigation and qualitative punishment to such doctors will discourage others to attempt an indecent behaviour in future.

    The junior doctor must have been so irresistible, the senior doctor could not restrain himself. Such temptations destroy careers if not controlled and would land these men in jail, ruining everything that was going for them. Such men are like dogs going after... to satisfy their lust.
