Consultant cardiologist Dr Gohar Rahman, pictured, has been suspended from medicine for a year after previously admitting assaulting his daughter for attending a Halloween party
A top heart doctor who gave his teenage daughter a beating and labelled her a ‘prostitute’ after she went to a Halloween party has been banned from medicine for 12 months.
Dr Gohar Rahman, 57, grabbed the youngster by the hair, caned her on the bottom with his walking stick and then rained down punches on her head after he accused her of ‘bringing shame’ on their family.
The daughter, then 17, had earlier gone to the party after falsely telling her father she would be home from a friend’s house by 9.30pm.
She also went for a night out in her hometown before sleeping over at the home of a male friend.
But her defiance enraged married father-of-three Rahman, a consultant cardiologist at Wigan Infirmary, who set about his daughter when he and his wife, also a doctor, went to collect her the following morning.
As his wife looked on, Rahman shouted ‘I can’t believe what you have done – sleeping at a boy’s house’ and said he no longer ‘recognised’ her as his daughter.
During the assault back home she was was ordered to take off her party dress and put on traditional clothing instead before being ordered to pray.
Police were called in after the daughter sent out a SOS message on social media using a Nintendo DS.
