A police representative exposed during the trail that Fara admitted he was in possession of certain drugs without a permit.

Fara took the drugs from the "Asaf Harofe" hospital where he specialized in anesthesiology.

The suspect denied all connection with the incidents and claimed that he did not know the two female victims involved.

Police investigators were checking the possibility that there may be more female victims who were attacked by Fara.
