Sergeant Deswarao Gunputh Biography
Who is Sergeant Deswarao Gunputh ?
A British Army sergeant who s*xually assaulted a colleague’s girlfriend while the couple slept in bed has been jailed for four years and fired from the army.
Sergeant Deswarao Gunputh groped the young woman from the edge of a bed where she slept with her boyfriend after a night of drunkenness.
He initially fled the room when the woman ‘woke up in a haze’, but was eventually identified as arrested due to her ‘stiff’ hair with ‘too much product’.
A trial at the Military Court in Bulford, Wiltshire, heard that Sergeant Gunputh had been drinking shots of tequila with his colleague and girlfriend before heading to Ipswich, Suffolk, for more drinks.
They later headed back to base at Wattisham Airfield, where the incident took place.
The woman, a civilian in her 20s, told the court that she was “shocked” when she woke up at 2 a.m. to feel that someone was abusing her and saw her boyfriend fast asleep next to her.

He recalled feeling the hair ‘spiky’, which was later found to be Sergeant Gunputh through DNA testing.
The woman, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, said: ‘I and [my boyfriend] went back to her block … I don’t remember going to bed because I had been drinking.
“ I was awakened by the feeling that someone was touching me. It was awkward, weird, and disturbing … I wasn’t fully awake and woke up in a haze.
‘I realized that [my boyfriend] was next to me, so he must have been a third person in the room. I reached out my hand searching and touched his hair.
‘[The hair felt] like when someone uses too much product … it was almost stiff, like hay. [The room] was very dark, I opened my eyes but couldn’t see anything.
“They jumped back and left the room and I heard a door close. After the person left, he was really confused.
The woman tried to wake her boyfriend, but he was fast asleep, the court heard.
She then she realized that “his pants were only on one leg” and went to check the hallway before closing the bedroom door.
“I went into the bathroom and all I remember is sitting on the floor and crying,” added the victim.
Her boyfriend reported the incident the next morning.
The court heard that what she felt was Sergeant Gunputh’s “spiky” hair and his DNA was found on the victim.
Sergeant Gunputh of the 1st Army Air Corps Regiment denied penetrating the woman with his fingers, insisting that he was “flirting” with him during the night and claiming that his DNA was transferred to him while they were “taken from hand”.
However, he was convicted of penetrative s*xual assault on Wednesday.
He was jailed for four years and removed from the Army.
