Court finds Scottish GP guilty of sexual harassment against women
North Lanarkshire general practitioner Dr Krishna Singh has been found guilty of 54 sex offence charges against his female patients which took place between February 1983 and May 2018.
The doctor, who was awarded an MBE by the UK government in 2013, was involved in multiple sexual assaults which mostly took place at medical practices in North Lanarkshire, but incidents were also reported to have taken place at a hospital accident and emergency department, a police station and at the homes of his patients.
A woman came forward and reported him in 2018, which prompted the authorities to launch an investigation. After that, many more women came forward to inform them of what they had been through over the years but were afraid to report him as he was in a senior position.
Judge Lord Armstrong has postponed the sentencing of Dr Singh to next month. He is currently out on a bail but has had to submit his passport to the court.
