A friend of the woman helped her to book an ambulance to transport her mother from YCHM to the medical facility in Thergaon. The ambulance driver, identified as Kishore Patil (45), had agreed to ferry the woman’s mother to Thergaon for Rs 2,500. Upon reaching the Thergaon hospital, the woman was informed that no ventilator bed was free.

According to a report by The Times of India, the woman then asked Patil to drive back to YCMH. Taking advantage of the situation, Patil demanded Rs 14,000 to take the woman’s COVID-19-positive mother back to the hospital in Pimpri. He threatened her saying that he would leave her mother there if she refused to pay the money. With no other option, the woman agreed to pay Rs 14,000.

Shockingly, Patel molested her while taking the money from her. “While accepting the money, the man touched her inappropriately and made lewd remarks,” the report quoted a police officer as saying.

The affected woman later approached Pimpri Chinchwad police commissioner Krishna Prakash and narrated her harrowing experience to him. Following this, the Pimpri Chinchwad police arrested Patil. He has been charged with extortion and molestation.
