NRI: Doctor Jailed for Rape in UK

NRI doctor jailed for rape

  London, February 2
      An NRI doctor, who drugged and raped a prospective Indian bride and attempted to commit the same offence on another victim after luring them through a matrimonial website, has been jailed for 11 years in the UK.

     Anil Tangotra (53) gave false names on the marriage website and used witty chat-up lines and poetry to lure his victims, both in their early 30s, to come to his home in Ilford, Essex, where he spiked their food and drink before subjecting them to brutal attacks, the Daily Telegraph reported.

      A jury at Snaresbrook Crown Court in East London convicted him of raping and attempting to rape the first victim in 2006. He was also held guilty of sexually assaulting and attempting to rape the second victim in 2007.

     The father of two, who is going through a divorce, showed no reaction as Judge William Kennedy handed down the sentence, saying: “You were…a sexual predator determined to have sexual intercourse with young Indian women by whatever seduction…trickery or force became necessary.”

     The rape victim, an Indian student, told the court that she was treated “like a call girl” during a night of “pain and devastation”.

     The other woman, a teacher, wept as she described waking from a drug-induced coma to find the married doctor trying to have sex with her. A sedative found in her bloodstream matched one found at Tangotra’s home after his arrest. — PTI
