London: A 72-year-old doctor of Indian origin practicing in Scotland was found guilty of sex offenses against 48 female patients over the age of 35 on April 14, 2022.

General practitioner (GP) Krishna Singh has been accused of kissing, groping, giving inappropriate exams and making sleazy comments, charges he denied during a trial in Glasgow High Court.

The GP insisted the patients were wrong and that some of the exams matched what he had learned during his medical training in India.

According to reports from Scotland, the charges spanned between February 1983 and May 2018 and the offenses mainly occurred in doctors’ surgeries in North Lanarkshire, but also in a hospital accident and emergency department, a police station as well as during patient home visits. .

The Crown case is that Dr Singh was on a routine of offenses against women, prosecutor Angela Gray told the court.

Sometimes subtle or camouflaged, sometimes obvious and blatant. Sexual offenses were part of her professional life, she said.

Singh was considered a respected member of the community, he even received the royal honor of Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) for his contribution to medical services.

An investigation into his conduct was opened after a woman reported him in 2018.

The doctor was later found guilty of 54 counts against the victims, with the crimes primarily consisting of multiple sexual and indecent assaults.

He was found unproven on nine other counts and not guilty on two others.

The judge handling the case postponed sentencing until next month and granted Singh bail on the condition that he surrender his passport.
