A British doctor of Indian origin has been charged for allegedly giving unnecessary intimate examinations, smacking some female patients' bottoms and questioning them about their favourite sexual positions.
Dr. Rajinder Aggarwal, 54, stands accused of four charges of sexual touching of women between December 2006 and January 2007. Four women, aged between 26 and 53, have lodged complaints against him, The Sun reports.
A female colleague also complained that Dr. Aggarwal boasted about visits to sex parties before asking how often she had intercourse.
He was working as a locum at the Bluebell Surgery in South Ockchestendon, Essex, and Homerton Hospital, East London.
They complained that Dr. Aggarwal asked them out for dinner and had given out his phone number and even inquired what sexual positions they enjoyed.
Prosecutor Anthony Abell said one woman suffering from panic attacks was "prodded and pushed" around the groin area by the doctor when he was working on an out of hours service for Homerton Hospital in East London.
"He told her she was an attractive lady. He then asked her when she last had sex and with whom. He told her she looked like a million dollars and then gave her these words of advice - 'Do you know what would do you good? You should go out and paint the town red and have a good s****'"
Abell told the Essex court the doctor then wrote down his phone number and asked the stunned woman out for dinner.
One patient who went to see the doctor with a chest problem claimed he had got sexually aroused while examining her.
"He pulled down her tights and knickers and began to tap her lower stomach and pubic area. As he did this he was pressing his genitals against her lower right arm. She could tell he had an erection," Abell told the court.
"He told her to stand up and turn round. Once she had done so he smacked her on the bottom so hard that it hurt and caused her to stumble forwards."
Abell said: "It is alleged he sexually touched three female patients during consultations with them. During those consultations he spoke inappropriately about their sex lives and the prosecution say, touched them in an unnecessary and inappropriate ways."
"His touching of them was 'sexual' because of how and where he touched them. There are striking similarities in the way, which the defendant behaved with these three patients, none of whom know each other."
The court heard the doctor was arrested on March 26, 2008, and in a police interview he admitted seeing the patients and giving one his phone number, claiming she had asked him for it.
Dr. Aggarwal, who sat in the court smartly dressed, denies all of the charges. The trial, which is expected to last two weeks, continues.
