‘Monster’: Rape survivor of Shafiul Milky speaks of ‘heavy burden’ of keeping horror secret from family

The survivor of a rape at the hands of a “monster” has revealed she kept the crime inside a medical practice secret from her own family and friends.

Sarah – not her real name – has spoken for the first time after being raped by a former Geelong doctor, Shafiul Milky, at the Peninsula Family Medical Practice in 2018.

He was sentenced to 14 years and six months in prison after a jury found him guilty of 15 charges against six patients, including rape, indecent assault and sexual assault between 2012 and 2019.

It comes as more women are believed to be stepping forward with complaints against the general practitioner, according to law firm Arnold Thomas and Becker.
