Driving instructor facing charges of sexual assault

  • Print

A Winnipeg driving instructor is facing sexual assault charges after a number of incidents involving female students.

The investigation dates back to the summer of 2008, when a 29-year-old woman enrolled in some driving lessons with private driving school. According to police, the instructor inappropriately touched the women when explaining various driving techniques, such as driving in reverse and parallel parking.

In June 2011, a 16-year-old female student reported inappropriate touching during three different driving sessions. Reports were made, but no charges were pursued.

Earlier this year, an 18-year-old female received driving instruction from the same man, and filed a report of inappropriate touching to police. On Jan. 23, Jasbir Brar, 56, was arrested and charged with sexual assault due to his alleged involvement.

Brar was charged with two more counts of sexual assault and one count of sexual exploitation on Tuesday. He was released on a promise to appear.

Police say Brar is not connected with the Brar Driving School or any school with Brar in its name.
