GP ‘touched in­ap­pro­pri­ately’

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A MAR­RIED doc­tor is on trial ac­cused of grop­ing three fe­male pa­tients.

Dr Shri­vas Kini, 62, is al­leged to have as­saulted one of the women af­ter she had un­der­gone a laser hair re­moval treat­ment.

He is also ac­cused of sex­u­ally as­sault­ing an­other pa­tient at his clinic and in­de­cently as­sault­ing a 17-year-old girl while work­ing as a GP in an­other town.

Leeds Crown Court heard that one of the al­leged vic­tims made a com­plaint to po­lice af­ter un­der­go­ing a pro­ce­dure at Kini’s clinic in Leeds, West Yorks, in Novem­ber 2010.

Sharon Beattie, prose­cut­ing, told the jury the woman went for her ap­point­ment with Kini and he hugged her and kissed her on the lips.

The vic­tim broke down in tears in the wit­ness box as she told the court that Kini had as­saulted her while ap­ply­ing cream af­ter a hair re­moval treat­ment.

Kini then al­legedly started to touch her in­ap­pro­pri­ately for a few min­utes.

The woman told the court: “I froze, I cov­ered my face. I let him do that to me.

“I have got to live with that for the rest of my life.”

Kini de­nies one charge of in­de­cent as­sault, one charge of sex­ual as­sault and one charge of as­sault by pen­e­tra­tion.

The trial con­tin­ues.
