Toronto, (Agencies): An Indo-Canadian was among two doctors who have been arrested here on the charges of drugging and sexually assaulting a young woman.

Amitabh Chauhan and Suganthan Kayilasanathan, both 32, are alleged to have drugged a 23-year-old woman by slipping an unknown substance into her drink at a downtown bar here, report said.

Both doctors appeared in a court here for a bail hearing on Saturday after their arrest on Friday. But the court has adjourned the hearing until Wednesday.

Chauhan and Kayilasanathan allegedly met the woman at the bar and offered to provide her with career advice, the report said.

Sean Robichaud, who represents Chauhan, said that his client intends to fight the charges. "All I can say is that Dr Chauhan looks forward to contesting these allegations in court when the time comes."

Chauhan, of Ancaster, is listed with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario as a postgraduate student at McMaster University with the Department of Plastic Surgery. He graduated from McMaster University in 2010.

The second accused, Kayilasanathan, of Markham, is listed with the College of Physicians and Surgeons as a family physician practising at a Markham medical office.
