Indian-origin doc accused of groping patient says 'she tried to seduce me'.

London, Sept 7 (ANI): An Indian-origin doctor in England, who has been accused groping a patient during a physical examination, defended himself saying that she tried to seduce him, according to a hearing.

Dr Subramaniam Balu, 53, allegedly lifted a patient's bra and cupped her breasts as he checked her for symptoms of a bad cold at his surgery in Dudley, West Midlands in September 2008.

But after the patient made a formal complaint against him at the General Medical Council in Manchester, he claimed the 35-year-old patient had tried to seduce him.

However, later in a note the doctor allegedly faked an account in which he claimed the patient, 'noticeably showed herself and lifted her clothes.'

He also stated that she had tried to seduce him by 'pushing her chest forward' at him in a provocative way and then putting her 'arched buttocks' in his face.

If the panel rules against him he could be struck off.

The hearing was told the woman was 'shocked and disgusted' by the doctor's counter-claims.

"At no time were my actions as described by Dr Balu. As far as I'm concerned they are total lies," the Daily Mail quoted the woman as saying.

The hearing continues. (ANI)
