Kabir Garg: Doctor jailed for dark web child sexual abuse images
June 23, 2023
A junior doctor has been jailed for six years for his role in a dark web chat site dedicated to sharing images of child sexual abuse.
Kabir Garg, 33, from Lewisham, south-east London, pleaded guilty at Woolwich Crown Court to facilitating the exploitation of children.
Until he was arrested in November, he had been working as a psychiatrist for South London and Maudsley NHS Trust.
Garg had acted as a “moderator” of the site, the court had heard.
This involved overseeing the running of the site, which included giving advice in private messages on how to share images.
When he was arrested, the National Crime Agency (NCA) found thousands of indecent images on a laptop and SD card at his flat which had 522 category A images, which is the most serious category.
Examinations of his devices also uncovered numerous medical journals and articles that discussed the psychological impact of child sexual abuse on a child, which the NCA said showed he understood the “devastating impact such actions have on children”…
