Addlestone Man Jailed for 13 Years for Rape By Reading Crown Court

Kapil Dogra, 35, of High Street, Addlestone, Surrey, was found guilty by unanimous jury, following a five day trial at Reading Crown Court which concluded on 2 October.
He was found guilty of one count of rape, two counts of assault of a female by penetration, and one count of causing a female to engage in non-penetrative sexual activity.
Today (3/11) at the same court Dogra was sentenced to 13 years’ imprisonment. He will be on license for two years after release and will have to sign the Sex Offenders’ Register.
At around 10.20pm on 12 April 2017, Dogra approached his victim, a woman in her late teens, in London Road after she had left Datchet railway station.
He grabbed her and took her to a wooded area of land at the junction of Major Farms Road, Ditton Road and London Road where he then raped and sexually assaulted her.
Dogra admitted in court that he travelled from Staines to Datchet to buy Class A drugs when he happened across the victim as she left the station
Following an investigation by officers, Dogra was arrested on 18 April 2017 and was charged the following day.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Sara Harrison, of Force CID based at Maidenhead, said: “At no point during the trial did Dogra show any remorse for the terrible ordeal he put his victim through, which meant the victim had to face her attacker in court’
“The victim has been extremely brave throughout this process and I commend her for standing up to her attacker and I hope his sentence will help her move on.
“This incident came as a great shock to the community of Datchet and I would like to thank residents for their support during our investigation especially those who came forward as witnesses and those who provided CCTV evidence.
“Thankfully this type of attack is rare however I think this conviction shows that Thames Valley Police is committed to bringing sexual offenders to justice”.
