A doctor from North Lanarkshire has been jailed for 12 years after being convicted of a campaign of sexual abuse over nearly four decades. Krishna Singh, 72, was found guilty of 54 charges against 48 women while he was a GP in Coatbridge. BAPIO condemns this kind of unprofessional conduct and welcomes the judgment to jail him for 12 years.
Mr. Vipin Zamvar, Chair of BAPIO Scotland said “We are sorry to hear about the shameful behaviour of Dr Singh, an Indian Origin doctor. The medical training in India is of the highest standard as proved by so many Indian doctors working in NHS Scotland and we are proud of their contribution”.
Dr. Ramesh Mehta, President of BAPIO said “Thousands of Indian doctors are providing excellent service in the NHS. Dr. Singh’s case is exceptional and he deserves severe punishment”.
