Doctorto standtrial accused ofsexual offences
An Airdrie doctor is to stand trial accused of almost 100 sex offences against women and girls.
Krishna Singh, 72, faces a list of alleged crimes said to have occurred between 1983 and 2018.
They are mainly claimed to have happened at medical practices in North Lanarkshire.
One accusation allegedly took place in the accident and emergency department of a hospital.
The charges include indecent and sexual assault as well as acting in a lewd and libidinous manner.
Among the claims, it is alleged Singh got women to stand on scales before molesting them.
He is also accused of kissing females and making inappropriate comments.
A stethoscope is said to have been used in a number of the accusations.
Singh first faced the allegations at the High Court in Glasgow back in June 2019.
His lawyer Janice Green told the hearing at that time he pled not guilty to all 97 charges.
A number of hearings have taken place since that date.
It has been confirmed a trial has now been fixed, which is due to begin in February next year.
Singh remains on bail.
