Dr Prabhjot Gill – Domestic Violence, Abuse and More
Dr Prabhjot Gill is a doctor who was able to keep his job despite receiving allegations of domestic violence from his ex-wife.
The doctor’s wife had claimed that he beat her during their marriage. She recounted her experience at a medical disciplinary hearing. Even though the court had cleared Dr Prabhjot Gill of all criminal charges in 2015, he heard his former spouse’s claims in the medical disciplinary hearing later on.
The victim alleged that he used to punch her in the back, kick her and sometimes slap her. Furthermore, she claimed that he pushed her into a radiator once.
She alleged that in one instance, Dr Prabhjot Gill had pushed a dirty nappy into her face. Then, he took their children into another room and locked her in the bedroom of their estate.
The victim succeeded in recording one of their heated arguments. She played the recording before the tribunal.
The family doctor could have lost his license for misconduct as a result of this hearing. At the time of all these incidents, he was in a GP training program in Essex.
However, even though the tribunal found the argument’s recording ‘disturbing’, it didn’t find Dr Prabhjot Gill ‘impaired to perform his duty’. They found that his only wrongdoing was pushing the victim into a radiator.
It dismissed the rest of the allegations against the doctor.
The tribunal heard that the couple had married in 2006 but their marriage deteriorated over time. They had a lot of arguments, especially between March 11 and 15, 2014.
More Details on the Domestic Violence Case Against Dr Prabhjot Gill:
When she was giving evidence to the panel, the victim wept as she recounted the terrible incidents that occurred during their marriage. She said that most of their arguments were regarding their finances.
The victim pointed out that Dr. Gill would constantly belittle her job and tell her to make more money.
She described the incident when Dr Prabhjot Gill had shoved a soiled nappy into her face.
The victim explained that she was in the main bedroom of their house when he came up the stairs to the room. At the time, she was changing their daughter’s nappy. He noticed this and got mad at her saying it was disgusting.
Dr. Gill claimed that there were gems everywhere. The victim pointed out that she was only changing her daughter’s nappy on the bed and she had done this before.
He said it was disgusting and the two started having an argument. In the middle of the argument, he picked up the soiled nappy and put it in her face. Then, he took their daughter and the other kid to another room.
She pointed out that he locked her in the bedroom and the kids in another room. The victim recalled that their kids were screaming and crying but Dr Prabhjot Gill didn’t care.
He locked the door and didn’t let her out of the room to clean her face. When she requested him to open the door, he declined. Eventually, he opened the main door and let her out.
What Happened After the Nappy Incident:
The victim said that his sister was living with them and she kept asking him to keep calm. After that incident, the victim took the kids to stay with her parents for a few days.
Also, he was apologetic initially but then started telling the victim that he would come and get her and the kids if she didn’t come herself.
The victim told the panel that the nappy incident was very disgraceful and degrading. She didn’t want to go home. Eventually, she did return because he came to her parents’ house asking to take the children back.
After she got back to his house it didn’t take long for the couple to begin arguing again. A day after her return, Dr Prabhjot Gill argued with her again.
Apparently, he went to the kids’ room and saw them using a portable heating while watching cartoons. He allegedly picked up the heater and threw it down teh stairs. Then, he went into the bedroom to confront the victim.
This time, the victim recorded the argument fearing things might ‘escalate’.
She told the panel that she was scared for her and her kids’ lives. He had been violent towards her before and so, she thought recording it would be the best course of action.
Dr. Gill told her that she doesn’t pay for the heater, he does. Then he pushed her and she fell backwards into a radiator. He spat on her, kicked her when she was on teh floor and threw a slipper at her.
The victim recalled that she went downstairs to diffuse the situation but it didn’t help. He began shouting at her and she had to get out of the house.
The recording showed the couple arguing in Punjabi and English. You can clearly hear her crying and shouting “leave me alone” while Dr Prabhjot Gill says “I will smash your face in”.
Later, she called the police after Prabhjot began throwing her clothes out of the wardrobe across the room.
Dr. Gill admitted later on that he had lost his composure and was frustrated at the time.
The Divorce of Dr Prabhjot Gill and The Tribunal’s Observations
The victim pointed out that they tried to make the marriage work but things went downhill when she claimed that he had been abusive towards their young son.
A magistrate’s court didn’t find Dr. Gill guilty of any wrongdoing and cleared him of all charges in 2015.
The couple had divorced that year and he remarried the same year.
According to the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service, the victim’s evidence was ‘somewhat disorganized’. However, the panel chairman noted that the audio recording consisted of a distressing and heated exchange where Dr Prabhjot Gill lost control.
It found the recording to be disturbing.
Furthermore, the panel pointed out that the recording represented an imbalance of power and Dr. Gill must have been aware of how intimidating he was for his ex-wife.
As a result, the tribunal placed a warning on him for 5 years. That’s it. They said that he verbally abused the victim and pushed her, causing her to fall on a radiator.
According to the panel, this conduct doesn’t meet the standards required of a doctor and risks bringing disrepute to the profession. “Whilst this failing in itself is not so serious as to require any restriction on his registration, it is necessary in response to issue this formal warning,” the tribunal noted in its observations.
Currently, Dr Prabhjot Gill is working as a general practitioner at NHS England. He is also an OOH Clinician Supervisor and a MedCo Accredited DME.
Based on the panel’s observations it’s obvious that Gill is guilty of domestic violence and abuse. He was abusive towards his ex-wife and his punishment was a 5-year warning.
Do you think that’s a strict punishment for verbal and physical abuse of one’s spouse?
Keep in mind, such cases are becoming increasingly common where the culprit of domestic violence faces negligible punishment for their behavior. For example, Brook Lang Seattle used to abuse his wife and that marriage ended in divorce.
Beware of such people. Share your thoughts below.
Dr Prabhjot Gill has a history of domestic violence and abuse. For hurling verbal abuses and being physically violent towards his wife, he received a 5-year warning. The matter was called “disturbing” by a panel.

Being a doctor how can someone be this much cruel with the mindset of making her wife suffer like that and the children were also getting affected which is not at all cool?
The court made him leave the case without getting punished which was very hard on Mrs. Gill the court should have asked Prabhjot to pay the damages to her and get signed not to practice the same with anyone.
The way she was being treated would make anyone mentally and emotionally broken but the way the court gave him a clean chit was disappointing. Her wife wasn’t able to make any of the complaints against Prabjhot was making her wife’s life hectic.
My respect for the panel has increased they mentioned the concern about how being a doctor he was conducting these types of cruel activities which aren’t safe for the public around as well as for the human species.
The way he locked his children into another room and then the mother was weeping for her kids is heartbreaking and also getting harassed for his acts is full to full cruel.
What type of rush and chaos he made in the house, throwing her clothes is also very unprofessional making your wife suffer due to your attitude is annoying and disgusting.
Incidents like these fill positive energy among many other bearers who aren’t able to take necessary steps against those domestic violence cases happening to them. The government should increase the level of punishment related to these domestic violence cases so that no other person should be able to practice any activities like Prabhjot Gill.
The incidents discussed in the article are breathtaking, punching her into the radiator, throwing slippers,s and rubbing a nappy on her face is completely evil. How can someone be so cruel to someone for misbehaving with her wife in such a brutal way, it is really brave of her she didn’t pick any measures, instead made this criminal deal the right way.
My mother was also reading the article and sent the article to our family group asking everyone to read and understand the type of people living in this society, we were feeling ashamed and worried about her wife as well.
Such a shameless creature on earth is a child of a doctor I can’t relate to how can he be so cruel my mother was taken with the utmost care, and Prabhjot had made the community feel ashamed of the incident.
Thus it is very important for the family members to take care of their children’s nature and their behavior toward society, it is very important to make your children a gentleman, and treating others with utmost care and respect is very important.
This brought me to tears when she and her kids were locked into different rooms where they were crying and screaming but the helpless mother wasn’t able to help herself as all of her children, how can someone be this evil? There should be much more strict punishment for the cases like these and never let them move freely after committing such.
The way he was dealing with her was the most unrespectful and dirtiest way anyone could behave like towards their wife, and the type of mental pressure the children would be facing while all this fight.
I am really worried about the future of the children how will they be managing this evil in the house who is beating and harassing their mother in front of their eyes, and helplessly they aren’t able to help her?
Now, this incident is the irony of the current scenario where we are respecting women and asking them to compete at every stage against the males. But people like Prabhjot are still committing violence against their wives when they are making a big contribution to the development of society.
Here people were demanding his license be canceled. People come to your senses here. The wife isn’t able to get over the depression and wants her to lose the house now. As it is mentioned he is the bread earner of the house, she was completely dependent on him.
The incident when she recorded one instant of the heated argument and placed that in front of the tribunal but didn’t get his license canceled is completely strange behavior.
Kicking, punching, and slapping a woman, how is this even possible to commit such acts to someone? He was making her wife suffer situations like hell, here she should have also made him taste that medicine!
This evil only got a warning after committing violence including punching, kicking, throwing her on the ground, and verbally abusing her wife. Why is our justice system not powerful enough to make these criminals face the toughest punishments regarding crimes of domestic violence?
He enjoys his life after ruining her wife’s and children’s lives, and after facing charges of domestic violence he is still allowed to continue his practice is astonishing. This incident also raises several questions about our justice system.
The living conditions of women have deteriorated nowadays as the cases of domestic violence have increased for the last few years where a large number of divorces were registered. These violent cases are negatively impacting the lives of the kids present in the house. I pray to God to help the human race to get over these evil mindsets and let the essence of humanity spread again all over the world.
The moment she was committing all the incidents she cracked into tears, this shows the level of unbearable conditions and depressed life she was living.
The incident related to radiator one is heartbreaking, pushing her and throwing slippers on her is disgraceful to her and also her kids would have gotten scared because of the incident. And what type of impact do these incidents have on the children, may the lord save the family.
Now there should be some innovation in justice regarding the violence against women. The incident regarding the changing of the nappy is ridiculous, this shows the frustration level of Prabhjot towards her wife and children as well.
Why do men forget the fact they are here because of their mother who was a brave woman like their wife? People like Prabhjot are continuously trying to defame society because of their heinous crimes?
I have seen many cases related to domestic violence being a police officer I went to various locations and found people like Prabhjot, full of frustration and making tough conditions for their family members. I swear if someone is allowed to commit such acts to some soft-hearted person chances of committing suicide are more than 90%.
