The first incident involving Nikhil Narasappa, who was employed by Premier Healthcare Professionals and working at Emory University Hospital Midtown, happened on Oct. 13, but the investigation came back “inconclusive,” The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Narasappa was placed on leave during that investigation and returned to work afterward. Police were then called in to investigate a second incident that happened on Nov. 1, officials said.
