ON February 12, a man employed as a physiotherapist at a Chilliwack health clinic appeared in court to answer sexual assault charges.
Sanjay Amrutkar, 38, of Chilliwack, was arrested without incident, for offences which are alleged to have occurred while working as a physiotherapist dating from August and September 2019. He was initially charged with two counts of sexual assault.
As the result of new allegations, four additional charges of sexual assault have been laid against Amrutkar. He was arrested on March 4 and has since been released from custody pending a court date later this month.
“We believe there may still be additional victims who have yet to come forward,” says Chilliwack RCMP Constable Ralph Dolinsky.
If you have any information or believe you or someone you know may have been a victim, you are urged to contact the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or, should you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
