A GP who was allowed to carry on working after being found guilty of two sex attacks has been struck off after telling a patient “you’re a big girl aren’t you?”
Dr Rajinder Aggarwal, 58, was convicted of smacking two patients’ bottoms during medical examinations and grilling them about their sex lives after a trial at Basildon Crown Court.
Aggarwal had been accused of attacking four women between December 2006 and January 2007 when he was working as a locum doctor at east London’s Homerton Hospital and Bluebell Surgery in South Ockendon, but was cleared of two of the charges.
The medic from Ilford was handed a nine-month community order, and ordered to perform 80 hours of unpaid work in 2009.
He has now been struck off after the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service in Manchester found he had behaved inappropriately towards three female patients in 2011 and worked without proper insurance.
Panel chairman Dr Malcolm Phillips said: “Central to the panel’s consideration was the seriousness of Dr Aggarwal’s misconduct, and the repetitive nature of his behaviour towards female patients. His behaviour is incompatible with his continued registration as a doctor.”
