British national living in India arrested for sexually abusing visually impaired children in south Delhi. Murray Dennis Ward, who has been living in India for 17 years, was abusing three children at a blind school. The 54-year-old was allegedly found with more than 100 pictures and videos of children being sexually assaulted on his mobile phone. In a chat Ward "confessed" that he found sex with children "enjoyable".
The 54-year-old, from Gloucestershire, has a wife and three kids, who live in the UK. He was initially a school donor for 8-9 years before becoming a volunteer teacher. He had been working with Sterlite Technology Limited in Gurgaon, till April 2017 and met his alleged victims while conducting charitable work. The police said the accused had suffered a paralytic attack in February 2017 and has been under treatment since then.
They said his cell phone was being examined, adding that his Macbook contained a couple of objectionable video clips. Investigators also claimed to have looked into Ward’s online chat records and discovered he was in contact with more than two dozen teenagers, both male and female. The conversations he had with these children struck a similar pattern. Ward was first befriending them and asking them whether they have girlfriends or boyfriends. This would allegedly be followed by questions on whether they have had any sexual experience.According to News18, Delhi Police is planning to send a woman officer to the houses of the children he was in touch with over the phone to ask more questions. Investigations continue and authorities have made a plea to reach out to any other potential victims. Investigations are continuing to determine whether or not he was a member of an international pedophile racket.
