The accused, 54-year-old Murray Dennis Ward

A British national suspected of abusing 34 children has been arrested in India. 

Murray Dennis Ward, who has been living in India for 17 years, was arrested after being accused of sexually assaulting three children at a blind school in south Delhi.

The 54-year-old, from Gloucestershire, was initially a school donor before becoming a volunteer teacher.

Investigators allegedly found more than 100 pictures and videos of children being sexually assaulted on Mr Ward’s mobile phone, the Times of India reported.

They also claimed to have looked into Mr Ward’s online chat records and discovered he was in contact with more than two dozen teenagers, both male and female.

Some of the videos had been filmed from his phone and others were downloaded from the internet, authorities alleged..

Mr Ward was interrogated by police officers and reportedly admitted to sexually abusing children.

He was in India working as a senior manager for a telecoms company and met his alleged victims while conducting charitable work.

Investigations continue and authorities have made a plea to reach out to any other potential victims.

As Mr Ward is accused of being part of online chat groups where videos and photos of children being sexually abused were shared, investigations are continuing to determine whether or not he was a member of an international paedophile racket. – Independent
