Orthopedic surgeon L Prakash's job was to mend bones that had been broken. Instead, this physician in the Indian city of Chennai found the business of peddling porn a bit more prosperous.
Prakash was sentenced to life Thursday for filming patients secretly in the nude and posting their photos on the Internet. Prakash is also accused of making pornographic videos utilizing young boys and girls who came his way.
It was back in 2001 that headlines about the sleazy doctor emerged. A teenager tipped off the police.
The Times of India reported that the teen, with evidence of pornographic pictures from Prakash's website, told the police that he had fallen for the charms of two girls.
The girls then escorted him to the doctor's clinic, house and later to a little islet off north Chennai. The teenager was then allegedly forced to have sex with the women which the doctor filmed.
At Prakash's sentencing, Judge R Radha said: 'Since he has played with the modesty of women, his crime cannot be taken lightly and he deserves life imprisonment.'
Prakash and his three associates have been in jail for the last six years.
