'Predatory' rapist jailed for 12 years
Criminal Courts of Justice

A 'predatory' rapist who lured two friends back to his apartment where he drugged and raped them has been given a 12-year jail sentence today.

Indian national Kapil Garg had promised the girls ecstasy tablets after meeting them on a night out in Dublin but instead gave them antidepressant tablets with a sedative effect, before raping them.

Gardaí found a stash of the tablets at his home after the girls managed to escape and alert them of the attack.

Garg has previous convictions in the US including a battery conviction for an incident in 2004 in which he broke into a sleeping woman's motel room and began touching her before being chased from the room.
