Meerut: A woman patient was allegedly gangraped by a group of staffers of a hospital following which five persons were detained, police said on Monday.

“The woman was admitted to the hospital with a breathing problem. She has alleged that she was gang-raped by hospital staffers on Sunday,” Circle Officer Harimohan Singh said.
