DAYTON, OH — An Indian American physician has been arrested on charges of gross sexual imposition for allegedly groping the breasts of two teenagers during examinations.

Pediatric gastroenterologist Arun Aggarwal, who practised at the Dayton Children’s Hospital in Dayton, Ohio, pleaded not guilty to the charges at his arraignment on August 31, which was conducted via video from Montgomery County, Ohio jail.

He is being held on $500,000 bail, and has been ordered to surrender his passport.

Aggarwal was arrested when he flew from Cleveland, Ohio, to Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C., to catch a connecting flight to India. He was held at Loudon County Jail in Virginia without bail before being extradited back to Ohio.

Aggarwal has been charged with four felony counts of gross sexual imposition. He has told the Ohio State Medical Examiners Board that he touched the breasts of the girls as part of his examinations.
