A sleazy doctor is behind bars after being convicted of raping a teenager and sexually assaulting another female.
Khalid Jamal, 45, met the women on a dating website and took them to his house – where he invited them to look at his pet fish in his bedroom.
The first female, now 27, had been out with Jamal on a number of occasions but on Christmas Eve 2013 was attacked by him while he tried to persuade her to have sex .
He only stopped when she convinced him she would come back to his Great Western Road flat the next day if he did.
His second victim, then 19, was taken to his house, described as a “cabin” in Balloch where he raped her, between April and May 2016.
The teenager saw him again months later in September, when Jamal – who has been suspended by the General Medical Council – promised to drive her home from a night out.
Instead after claiming he had “a shot of alcohol” and couldn’t take her home, drove her to his Parkhead flat and attacked her.
Jamal, from India – who told the girls he was a doctor in his twenties – denied the allegations and claimed that he did have sexual contact with both of them but that it was consensual.
But, a jury at the High Court in Glasgow convicted him of raping and sexually assaulting one girl, and sexually assaulting a second.
Advocate depute Stewart Ronnie in his speech to the jury that with both girls there was some sort of conversation about “come and see his fish”.
He said jurors were “entitled to find Khalid Jamal guilty of all three charges”.
In evidence, the 27-year-old said she met Jamal online and they had met up in person a number of times.
She said there was consensual sexual contact with the doctor, who claimed to be 26 or 27.
But, that on December 24, 2013 while at his flat in the city’s west end, Jamal invited her to come and see his new fish in his bedroom.
He pushed her down from behind, pinned her down and groped her.
Jurors heard Jamal “persisted” in trying to persuade her to have sex and said “just do it” but she repeatedly said no.
Sleazy Jamal only brought her ordeal to an end when she “convinced” him she would come back the next day.
The witness said “It was really scary” and he drove her home in a car ride that was “really eerie, totally silent”.
The girl said: “I just felt lucky, I was lucky nothing worse happened.”
Jamal told his second victim he was 24 and on their first date picked her up in Glasgow city centre, in April or May 2016.
He suggested they go to his house, and drove them to Balloch, Alexandria.
Initially she had no concerns but Jamal suggested they went to his bedroom, where there was room for them to both sit down.
Jurors heard he stripped off in front of her and after she moved away from him on his bed, he pushed her down and raped her.
She told how she shouted at him and he told her “it’s fine”.
The teenager screamed at him to get off then “gave up trying to fight him” until the attack came to an end.
He then took her home and she later sent him a message saying she didn’t want to speak to him because he had hurt her.
Months later in September 2016, after winning tickets to night at the Savoy nightclub in Glasgow, Jamal offered to take the girl to save her leaving early to get a train.
But when they left the club, she realised she didn’t know where he was taking her because she didn’t recognise the area.
Instead of driving to her house he took her to his Parkhead home claiming he had “had a shot of alcohol” and would need to rest first.
She also said there was a “weird conversation about going to see his fish”.
When they got there, a taxi was phoned but there was no answer. She said she wept as he sexually assaulted her in his bedroom.
She told the court she asked Jamal to phone her a taxi again, which he did, and when she got in the driver asked her why she was crying.
Jamal denied the charges and claimed any sexual contact with the women was consensual.
In his police interview he told officers he was a doctor, although not currently working, and “wanted to help people”.
Judge Johanna Johnston QC deferred sentence on Jamal until next month and remanded him in custody.
