When you go to the doctor with your child your trusting that doctor with their life in his hands. That last thing you expect is the doctor to abuse your trust and him put his hands on your daughters breasts and between her legs during an examination. Well that’s what perverted Doctor Imran Khan, 40, who worked at the Forest Group Practice, in Brandon, and also at West Suffolk Hospital allegedly did to one young girl who complained of stomach pains. He was that concerned about her well being he even made a home visit to her for a further medical. Offering the girl his mobile number and to babysit the schoolgirl to her parents……..like any good Doctor would do….wouldn’t they? !!!
West Suffolk: Doctor denies groping girl during examination
Dr Imran Khan leaving court in Bury St Edmunds

A doctor sexually assaulted a schoolgirl on seven occasions after asking her to undress during medical examinations, it has been alleged.
Dr Imran Khan asked the girl, who had asthma and complained of abdominal pains, to remove her bra before putting his hands on her breasts and moving them around in a circular motion and squeezing them, Ipswich Crown Court was told.
Khan, 40, who worked at the Forest Group Practice, in Brandon, and also at West Suffolk Hospital, had also allegedly touched her between the legs during a visit to his surgery and during a visit to her home and told her she had a lovely body, Andrew Thompson, prosecuting said.
“From an early stage she began to be concerned that he was investigating things he didn’t need to address,” said Mr Thompson.
He said during the alleged offences the girl had confided in family about misgivings and eventually told her mother who contacted the police.
Khan was arrested in November 2011 and denied the girl’s allegations. Mr Thompson said in particular Khan denied ever asking the girl to remove her bra and touching her breasts and also denied touching her between the legs.
Khan, of Osprey Close, Bury St Edmunds, denies seven offences of sexually assaulting a girl under the age of 13.
Mr Thompson told the court the girl went to see Khan at his surgery with her mother in September 2011 complaining of abdominal pains.
Khan told the girl to lie down on an examination bed and pulled a curtain round them while her mother stayed in the room.
The girl, who was in school uniform, was asked to remove her shirt and bra and Khan allegedly moved his hand round her breasts in and squeezed them.
Mr Thompson told the court the girl had mentioned she had growing pains in relation to her chest but was surprised at what he was doing as the main reason for her visit was abdominal pain.
During later appointments Khan allegedly told the girl to take off her bra and touched her breasts and on one occasion allegedly pulled down her trousers and pants and rubbed between her legs. “This was a significant escalation,” said Mr Thompson.
He alleged Khan had regularly called the girl’s mother to see how she was and had offered to visit her at home after she had an asthma attack during a sports match.
He had asked if he could examine the girl in her bedroom and when they were alone he had allegedly touched her breasts before getting her to pull down her pants. He had allegedly touched her breasts with one hand while he touched her between the legs with the other.
During the visit he had given the girl his mobile telephone number and allegedly offered to give her a lift home if she missed her bus or to “babysit” her if her mother had to work.
The trial continues today.
