A former GP has been jailed for 11 years after he was found guilty of ten counts of indecent assaults on female patients. Navin Naran Zala, of Marling Way, Gravesend, was convicted on 19 June at Hove Crown Court, following an investigation by Kent Police.
The 63-year-old’s crimes first came to light in 2011, when two former patients alleged he had indecently assaulted them on several separate occasions when they were aged 14 to 17. The assaults took place over several years in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
