The 47-year-old is also said to have given the alleged victim a packet of Methotrexate, a drug used to induce abortions.
However, he refused to answer officers when asked about the alleged incidents, telling them he ‘had nothing to say’.
The court was told that in a WhatsApp exchange that took place after the alleged rape, the doctor told the woman he didn’t owe her salary because he had provided her with medication.

The trial resumes at 11am on Friday.
