Family GP Davinderjit Bains pleads guilty to abusing female patients
A PERVERT doctor from Royal Wootton Bassett who used a secret camera inside his James Bond-style wristwatch to record himself abusing female patients is facing jail after admitting a string of sex charges.
Dr Davinderjit Bains, 45, used his position as a family GP at a medical practice in Tinkers Lane, to assault more than two dozen women.
Bains filmed the attacks on his Tieex 4GB Waterproof HD Spy Watch DVR, which has been likened to something out of a 007 film.
It has a built-in camera on the face - with simple on and off buttons to record - and can be bought on the internet for less than £60.
Detectives branded Bains a 'sexual predator' and said he had 'massively' breached the trust that patients place on their doctor.
Swindon Crown Court heard that Bains has admitted more than 30 charges including sexual assault and voyeurism.
At a previous hearing, Bains admitted 12 charges of assault by penetration, 11 charges of sexual assault and 11 charges of voyeurism.
This morning he admitted a further two charges of voyeurism, two of sexual activity with a child and a single charge of assault by penetration.
In total Bains has pleaded guilty to 39 sex charges.
His not-guilty pleas to three charges of sexual assault and a single count of administering a noxious drug with intent to commit a sexual offence were accepted by the Crown and will lie on file.
At the earlier hearing, Judge Douglas Field banned the media from reporting the guilty pleas until Friday when the court heard that Bains will not face trial.
Bains, of Nyland Road, was remanded into custody to await sentencing.
In a statement, Dective Inspector Mark Garrett, head of Swindon CID, said: "Dr Davinderjit Bains, a GP from Tinkers Lane Surgery in Royal Wootton Bassett, has now pleaded guilty to a total of 39 sexual offences.
"In addition, a further 65 sexual offences have been admitted and will be taken into consideration.
"Dr Bains appeared today at Swindon Crown Court and was remanded in custody to await sentencing."A large number of female patients, including teenage girls, put their trust in this man to treat them with the professionalism, care and discretion that we all expect of our family doctor.
"But today he stands exposed as someone who has utterly betrayed that trust for his own sexual gratification. This has been a detailed and sensitive investigation by Wiltshire Police.
"Two of my female detectives viewed hundreds of video clips. They then had the task of identifying the victims and letting them know the horrible truth that the intimate examinations they had undergone had been secretly filmed by their doctor, using a camera hidden in his watch and that many of those examinations were medically unnecessary.
"Now, as Dr Bains awaits what I hope will be a substantial prison sentence, I would like to pay tribute to the teenage student lodger who came to us with her concerns about his behaviour when she stayed at his home.
"Without her coming forward we would have known nothing of Dr Bains’ shameful activities in the privacy of his consulting room at the Tinkers Lane Surgery.
"I would also like to acknowledge the bravery of that young woman and the patients who were also his victims.
"They provided accounts of what took place and told us they were prepared to give evidence, had this case gone to trial - happily they were spared that additional ordeal.
"I would like to acknowledge the support which NHS Wiltshire and Wiltshire Council gave to this Wiltshire Police investigation.
"In almost 30 years of police service I have never come across a case like that of Dr Davinderjit Bains.
"I am proud and pleased that we have brought an end to his years as a predatory sex offender."
