Tongaat doctor fondled flu patient and asked if her boyfriend satisfied her

Published

Durban – A Tongaat doctor who sexually assaulted a patient and quizzed her about whether her boyfriend had satisfied her, has had his licence wholly suspended for three years on condition that he does not commit a similar offence.

The Health Professions Council of SA found Shuran Jekmohan, 44, guilty of sexual assault and doing an inappropriate examination on a patient.

He had pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The Zimbabwean woman, who cannot be named, claimed Jekmohan fondled her instead of treating her flu-like symptoms.

Jekmohan told the hearing he had learnt his lesson and wanted to move forward.

HPCSA chairperson, Smangaliso Ngubane, rejected Jekmohan’s version of events saying it was contradictory.

However, he found the complainant, 32, to be a credible witness.

The woman testified that she had been a patient of Jekmohan in June last year and had gone to him for treatment of a sore throat.

He had made her remove her clothes and lie on the bed in her underwear.

She claimed he played with her nipples and put her hand on his buttocks and his private area.

Jekmohan said he had examined her breasts because she claimed she had missed her menstrual cycle and suspected she was pregnant.

The woman refuted this saying that she had an Implanon (contraceptive).

She said when he began examining her she was “traumatised”.

The woman claimed Jekmohan asked her whether her boyfriend satisfied her in bed.

Jekmohan claimed the woman was upset that she was not pregnant. He said the woman misconstrued what he asked her.

“When patients come into our rooms regarding fertility problems we ask them three questions.

“Does your partner smoke, consume alcohol and if he has power.”

He said power was related to sex drive.

He claimed he did an ultrasound and urine test.

The woman said that before he could touch her private area she jumped up and a nurse then handed her medication and she left.

“When I told my boyfriend what he did, he approached the front desk nurses and they just looked.

“It seemed as if they knew something but were afraid to talk because they could lose their jobs.”

The woman said the doctor told her she was beautiful in an unprofessional manner.

“I am a health care consultant and I know what is professional and unprofessional.”

Jekmohan said he had been a doctor for 18 years and he was not unprofessional.

He also said he was married with a 6-year-old son.

After being found guilty, Jekmohan apologised profusely to his colleagues saying that he was embarrassed. POST

Teddy mafia son in law

Kesavan Isaac Naidoo, the son-in-law of slain alleged Durban drug boss “Teddy Mafia” has survived a brazen attempted assassination on Wednesday, his family confirmed.

The incident took place at about 10am in Shallcross, south of Durban.

Naidoo, 41, is the son-in-law of Yaganathan Pillay – also known as Teddy Mafia.

He was shot twice in a daylight hit on Table Mountain Drive. The incident was captured on CCTV.

“Isaac was shot in both legs and his driver was shot in the hand. Both of them survived. They’re in hospital,” he said.

Pillay said Naidoo was in the back seat while his wife was in the front. The shooting, seen in the footage, takes place moments after they open the doors of their vehicle to get out.

In the footage, a white vehicle can be seen driving along Table Mountain Drive before it is stopped, partially blocking the left hand side of the road. Thirteen seconds later, Naidoo’s vehicle, a white Toyota Fortuna, pulls up.

The back passenger door of the Fortuner is opened, but it is not clear from the footage who the person was who opened it or if they got out of the vehicle.

Naidoo’s wife is seen getting out of the front passenger side of the vehicle and walks towards the rear of the SUV.

Suddenly, four men alight from the stationary vehicle, three of them drawing firearms and running towards the Fortuner, firing multiple shots. The fourth man stands next to the white car.

As the bullets are fired, Naidoo’s driver accelerates and drives past the other vehicle. Naidoo is presumably in the vehicle as it speeds away, but this could not immediately be confirmed.

Pillay said Naidoo was doing “OK”.

Police have been approached for comment, and this story will be updated.
