Blind child abuser has wife & children
Muray Ward, the 54-year-old British man arrested for sexually assaulting three young boys at a hostel for blind children has been in India since last year, say the police.
He has been charged under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, and faces a minimum 10 years in prison if convicted.
Ward, who is married with a family in the United Kingdom, had been employed in a senior managerial position at a company in India before quitting his job in April.
He visited the hostel in Delhi sometimes as often as once per week. Police are looking into his motivations and online activity. Based on the contents of his laptop, mobile and personal chat history, police believe that he is a paedophile.
The police will take the help of a child psychologist to speak with the boys who raised the complaints. Their ages and identities have not been revealed.
Authorities will also speak with other children at the hostel, which houses and educates around 170 blind students.
