An 'entitled and self-obsessed' civil servant who claimed his victim's violent sexual assault allegations were part of her BDSM fantasies is facing jail.

Vidul Vithlani, 27, claimed he had 'sexted' and discussed rough sex before he arranged to meet the complainant in his car to listen to music and smoke cannabis on August 24, 2018.

He alleged the woman, who cannot be named, enjoyed taking part in fantasy roleplay, spanking and BDSM but the Old Bailey jury rejected his defence and unanimously convicted him of rape and sexual assault. 

The woman said Vithlani held his hand on her head as he forced her to perform oral sex in a car park in west London.

She admitted that Vithlani had done this before but said that this time 'it was more violent in nature'.

'Before it was more [like] he was resting his hand. With this one, he had a grip.'

Judge John Hillen said: 'When giving his evidence, he came across as an extremely entitled and self-obsessed man, most of his evidence was about himself.

'Really what concerns me is his attitude to women in general.'

The politics and international relations graduate hung his head as jury delivered their verdicts.

He was remanded in custody in Belmarsh prison ahead of sentence on 23 December.

Vithlani claimed the woman consented but he was convicted of rape and sexual assault by an Old Bailey jury following a two week trial. 

Neil Griffin, defending, read out text messages Vithlani had sent the complainant which said: 'You can say no and you really wouldn't stop me.'
