Dr Balvinder Mehat, Known Genital Mutilator, Nottingham: a clarification

The last edition of the Mail on Sunday carried a piece on Dr Balvinder Mehat, a Known Genital Mutilator plying his evil criminal trade in Nottingham. Some corrections / clarifications are in order:

  1. The mother is not, at this stage, prosecuting the doctor.
  2. The General Medical Council (GMC) has concluded an investigation, and decided that Mehat will face a disciplinary tribunal.
  3. Saimo Chahal QC, a human rights lawyer, has written to the police, giving them 14 days to reopen their criminal investigation of Mehat. If the police fail to do this, then she will instigate a judicial review.

This will not be the first time Mehat has had a brush with the criminal justice system. In 2009 the Nottingham Post carried the story that he owned a portfolio of more than 35 properties in the city, and had paid a fine and costs of over £20,000 in relation to safety issues at one of them, where he had student tenants. An extract:

The city council said it pursued Dr Mehat before taking the matter to Nottingham Magistrates’ Court.

The statement said: “Despite being given a number of warnings by the city council Dr Mehat failed to manage the property correctly or to apply for the appropriate licence.”

If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.

    How can the police not have enough evidence to charge him?
