Chilliwack – On Wednesday 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 dating from August and September 2019, which are alleged to have occurred while working as a physiotherapist. Mr. Amrutkar was charged with two counts of sexual assault and is released from custody pending a March court date.
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.
