Four lab technicians working in a state-run hospital were arrested today for allegedly sexually harassing trainees, police said.
The victims were deputed for lab training at the government-run medical facility in Secunderabad, they said.
"The trainees submitted a representation to the superintendent of the hospital in the month of August 2017 levelling allegations of sexual harassment by the lab technicians," police said in a release.
An inquiry committee was set up to look into the allegations, it said.
