A PERVERTED doctor who sexually assaulted female patients as young as eight over a 10-year period has been sentenced to just two years in jail.

Doctor Markandu Ragupathy, of Den Close, Beckenham, preyed on vulnerable patients, touching them for his own sexual gratification, while he worked at Catford’s Torridon Road practice.
