Chiropractor released on bail

The Law Courts Building in downtown George Town.

A George Town chiropractor accused of 10 counts of indecent assault on female patients was released on bail after appearing in Summary Court on Thursday morning.

Jemal Khan, 47, was charged Wednesday with those 10 counts and an additional eight counts of insulting behavior.

On Thursday, Magistrate Grace Donalds granted attorney Laura Larner’s request for bail for Khan.

The conditions of his bail are that he is to reside in his own home, and he is not to leave the Cayman Islands, nor apply for travel documents, nor contact directly or indirectly any of the prosecution’s witnesses. He is also to report to the George Town Police Station once a week.
Khan’s license has been revoked and he is no longer practicing.

He was arrested on June 7 on suspicion of misconduct with his patients at his chiropractic practice in Pasadora Place.

According to a police press release last month, the arrest followed a police investigation into a complaint from one of Khan’s female patients, who told officers that she suspected he had taken unauthorized photos of her during treatment.

During their investigation, police found photographs of other women who appeared to be patients, and did not appear to be aware they were being photographed.

No details of the charges were discussed in court Wednesday. The case is due to be mentioned again in court on July 28.
