"I can't take it anymore. You're hurting me."
Ranvir Singh, aged 26, has been jailed for six years after committing two counts of rape. The Indian man had raped a sex worker in Australia.
He now faces deportation after serving his sentence.
Singh, who was described as “brutish”, ignored the Melbourne sex worker’s pleas to stop. He then refused to leave because the booking was not over.
He was found guilty of raping the woman twice at a brothel in Collingwood in February 2018.
Victorian County Court Judge George Georgiou told Singh:
“You ignored her repeated requests to stop. You ignored her physical resistance in the face of that resistance, you asserted your power and physical strength over her.”
The sex was initially consensual, however, that changed when Singh, then aged 24, became “rough”. He then bit and pinned the woman to the bed.
She told him: “Stop. You are hurting me. I can’t take it anymore. You’re hurting me.”
Instead, Singh ignored her pleas and held her down on the bed, pinning her arms during the rape.
He said: “It’s fine. You can take it.”
Following the attacks, Singh told the victim to get back in the bed because “the booking wasn’t over”, however, she escaped the room and went to her manager.
The court heard that the woman was left haunted by the rapes, left with chronic post-traumatic stress disorder and “stripped of her will to live”.
She previously said: “It feels as though I am the one being punished, being judged and excluded from society, silenced into submission.”
The victim told the Indian man:
“Whatever discomfort you may feel will never come close to resembling the cruelty I have experienced first hand.”
She revealed that she was left an “empty husk” after the rapes.
The judge said the rapes “clearly humiliated and degraded her”.
Judge Georgiou said:
“It frightened her, it rendered her powerless and caused her significant pain.”
The court was told that Singh felt a sense of entitlement because he paid for sexual services.
The judge told him: “Your brutish behaviour and words to the victim at the time you were raping her are consistent with that explanation.”
Singh has continued to deny that he did anything wrong. He even told a mental health professional that he blamed police for his conviction.
He was sentenced to six years in prison. He must serve at least three years and eight months before he is eligible for parole.
Singh faces deportation after he serves his sentence.
