The photos and videos of Ratnakar 'flirting' with female colleagues at office have gone viral on social media.

    I read in some newspapers that the doctor has taken his girl staff to out side Mangalore like Madikeri, and other places . But how those girls went along with him??. I think they went willingly. If those girls have no interests, they could have given the complainant that time itself. After everything and now giving complaint against him means " Dal main kuch kala hai."

    He is a doctor without brain? At this mobile and internet era he simply taken for granted when his misadventure is being photographed and videoed. Any one takes a photo or video has the potentiality of going viral if it is near scandal. It is not fully one sided force if you see the video, women were a bit hesitant and like cooperative. Anyway he spoiled the image of doctors and public may suspect any doctor as probably this doctor is another Mr.... Rtnkr .

    real kujuma, kodial - Well said I fully agree with you ! Sincerity, Hearty Love, Love at first sight all have become things of the past. Now a days eyes meet, fake love invites two hearts third step AC room and forth step black mail for ransom. People can watch You tube Pranks and exposing cheaters who commit all such rackets for some monitory gain. Love gone with wind.

    The Females counterparts too are part of the flirtations of this doctor. As long as there is no complaint ..what is the problem ..I do not understand ..Why some third party has to complain ..let the victims complain .. If they dont, then it is consensual and should be forgotten..Only thing wrong is they do it during their duty hours .. Anyways ,these govt officials do only this at their office ..Either talk of some saree ,childrens marriage and wealth or something related their pension amount and money back insurance policies. They will do everything else other than the job that they are appointed for.

Stolen properties ??? ....Terrorist links????....Hmm...What a joke...Where this Magistrate studied law ...in Afghanistan.... Very poor legal show.... In my opinion if Police think he may threaten witnesses or destroy evidence,,,, Dr. Rat....should have been given Judicial Custody for 2 days not Police Custody... Miscarriage of Justice here..... ...Tak...Takk...

    Why do the police show only the accused male's photo, not of the women complaints? A picture remains in the mind for a long time. Whether the man is innocent or convicted, he has already been convicted in people's mind.
