Six months in jail for fondling doctor

A patient who fondled a doctor’s breast while being treated for a gum disease at the San Fernando General Hospital was yesterday sent to prison for six months.

Michael Bhagaloo, 25, of Rio Claro, who was born with a congenital disorder, pleaded guilty in the San Fernando Magistrates Court to the charge of indecently assaulting the doctor.

Bhagaloo went to the hospital seeking treatment for periodontal (gum) disease on April 4.
