LONDON (NEWS): A 45-year-old dirty Punjabi doctor in Britain, whose sexual perversion led him to secretly film the intimate examination of hundreds of his women patients over three years using his hidden wristwatch camera, faces long time in jail.
Davinderjit Bains, the general practitioner at Tinkers Lane Surgery in Royal Wootton Bassett near Swindon, used his cheap wristwatch camera (costing 60 pounds) to secretly record hours of footage of his female patients’ intimate examination so that he could watch them later for sexual gratification.
The spy camera, hidden in the number six on his wristwatch, could be easily switched off and on by single button.
When police raided him at his clinic in June last year, they found 361 video clips – from 10 to 45 minutes long – showing recordings of the intimate examinations of more than 200 of his patients.
In the video clips, Bains could be seen deliberately fondling the breasts and groin areas of women – from ages of 14 to 51 – during the examinations.
The dirty doctor, who appeared in Swindon crown court on Friday, pleaded guilty to two charges of voyeurism, two charges of sexual act with a child and a charge of sexual assault by penetration.
During his previous court, he had admitted to 12 charges of assault by penetration, 11 charges of sexual assault and 11 charges of voyeurism. In all, Bains has so far admitted to 39 sex charges.
Bains was exposed when a 19-year-old student told police that he gave her booze laced with drugs, then filmed her showering and finally sexually assaulted her.
At Friday’s hearing, the judge told Bains, who has been suspended by the General Medical Council from the profession, that he will remain in custody till his sentencing hearing.
“You will remain in custody and you will be brought back here on a date to be notified to you. You will go now with the custody staff,’’ the judge said.
On the basis of videos recovered from Bains, police had contacted hundreds of potential victims.
“Our challenge was to identify who these patients were, to locate them and disclose that their medical examination had been recorded by their family doctor for his own gratification,’’ said Det Insp Mark Garrett of Wiltshire Police who led the investigations.
“There were a number who simply couldn’t believe it. They couldn’t believe that their GP had betrayed their trust in such a way. Others were outraged and concerned that the footage could have been shared but I can categorically say we found no evidence to show that it had been.”
Shocked by the case, Garrett said, “He (Bains) is a sexual predator who abused the trust of his patients and his position of authority. In almost 30 years of police service I have never come across a case like that of Dr Davinderjit Bains.’’
