A doctor is the second God. He is someone who restores human health back to normal through the best practice of medicine. With vast knowledge, a doctor can diagnose and treat human disease, injuries, ailments, pain and so on.
Meanwhile, in shocking news, a 72-year-old Indian-origin doctor practising in Scotland was found guilty of sex offences against 48 female patients over the last 35 years.
The wrongdoer identified as Krishna Singh, a general practitioner (GP), was accused of sex offences against several female patients. He was accused of kissing, groping, giving inappropriate examinations and making immoral remarks.
However, the old man denied the charges during a trial at the High Court in Glasgow. Krishna Singh also insisted the patients were wrong and that some of the exams were what he had been taught during medical training in India.
‘The Crown case is that Dr Singh was in a routine of offending against women,’ prosecutor Angela Gray told the court. ‘Sometimes subtle or camouflaged, other times obvious and flagrant. Sexual offending was part of his working life,’ she added in a statement.
For the unversed, Krishna Singh was seen as a respected member of the community. Notably, he was even awarded the royal Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) honour for his valuable contribution to medical services. However, an investigation into his conduct was launched after 1 woman reported him in 2018.
For the unversed, the doctor was convicted of 54 charges against the victims. The crimes comprise multiple sexual and indecent assaults. Meanwhile, Dr Singh was found not proven on 9 other charges and not guilty on the other 2 charges. The judge hearing the case stopped sentencing until next month and permitted Singh to be released on bail but on the condition that he gave up his passport.
